Measurement of sectional lift forces on an oscillating cylinder.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Wind tunnel experiments were carried out to measure lift forces and coherence on a vibrating cylinder in transcritical turbulent flow. The force measurements were made on six sections of a cylinder. The method by which the inertial component of the load signal was removed is described. Timeseries of lift forces on rigid and vibrating cylinders at subcritical and critical Reynolds Numbers are presented. (A)
