Abstract

The interaction between cylinder oscillation and the shedding of vortices is investigated numerically in this paper. The near wake structure is presented for different values of reduced velocity of a cylinder free to oscillate transversely. One of the objectives of this paper is to compare the numerical results with experimental data obtained by Parra [11] in the water tank facility of IPT/University of Sao Paulo. The attraction of applying numerical methods to this problem is that the way the flow is modified can be studied in closer detail. In the computer it is possible to investigate many different f
