Reverse flow (i.e. flow in the direction opposite to the free stream) inside a channel occurs when an obstruction is placed at certain positions near the near to the channel, placed in another wider channel. In this paper the reverse flow in a duct (diameter D) with an obstruction at the front (which is a disc), is investigated using PIV. The gap g between the obstruction and the entry to the duct is systematically varied and it is found that maximum reverse flow occurs at a g/D value of 0.5. The flow is stagnant around g/D of 1.25 and forward flow occurs for g/D values of 1.5 and above.
