# Figure is on top of text [duplicate]

I am using IEEEtran for LaTeX. That means text is in two columns. I want to post a full figure page. I use:

\usepackage{pdfpages}

\begin{figure}
\includepdf{fluxograma.pdf}
\caption{SEAL flowchart.}
\label{fig_sim}
\end{figure}


But the figure shows up on top of the rest of my text

\newpage


does not work either. Any ideas?

\includepdf of package pdfpages is the wrong tool here. Its purpose are the inclusion of full page PDF pages as standalone PDF pages.
Macro \includegraphics of package graphicx includes images on a page:
\usepackage{graphicx}
