Abstract

Streamwise oscillations of a circular cylinder in a steady uniform flow are investigated experimentally using a technique of high-image-density particle image velocimetry, in conjunction with instantaneous force measurements. This approach allows insight into the relationship between the loading and the patterns of vorticity and streamline topology in the near wake.
