I am working on the extension of a hybridized discontinuous Galerkin method for unsteady flow problems. It is a socalled highorder method, i.e. the error decreases with third order or more under uniform mesh refinement.
Flows at high Mach numbers , i.e. supersonic flows, can be modeled by the Euler equations. These neglect viscous effects of a fluid as these only have a small influence on the resulting flow. However, in many applications these flows shocks develop. In this case we apply an artificial viscosity model for stabilizing the scheme.

For modeling viscous flow we use the compressible NavierStokes equations. These flows develop boundary layers when the fluid passes rigid walls since noslip condition conditions are enforced on these surfaces.
A `classical' phenomenon for viscous flows is the Karman vortex street. If a viscous fluid flows around an obstacle at moderate Reynolds numbers vortices shed periodically. It has been intensively studied by many scientists. Therefore, it is often used for verification of numerial methods. The actual behavior of the flow depends on the Reynolds number and the shape of the obstacle.
You can also let the fluid flow around obstacles such as the CMAT writing (see also top left of the homepage):
