Vortex shedding around circular cylinders is a well known and studied phenomenon that appears in many engineering fields. A Reduced Order Model (ROM) of the incompressible ow around a circular cylinder is presented in this work. The ROM is built performing a Galerkin projection of the governing equations onto a lower dimensional space. The reduced basis space is generated using a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) approach. In particular the focus is into (i) the correct reproduction of the pres- sure field, that in case of the vortex shedding phenomenon, is of primary importance for the calculation of the drag and lift coefficients; (ii) the projection of the Governing equations (momentum equation and Poisson equation for pressure) performed onto different reduced basis space for velocity and pressure, respectively; (iii) all the relevant modifications necessary to adapt standard finite element POD-Galerkin methods to a finite volume framework. The accuracy of the reduced order model is assessed against full order results.
