The cylinders are of identical diameters and are placed in a tandem arrangement at a distance of 5D (where D is the characteristic dimension of the cylinder; here diameter). The measurements are done at a Reynolds number (Re) of 100 over a range of reduced speed (1≤U*≤10). The modes of vortex shedding are studied along with interesting flow features at different U*.

Cylinders are separated by a center to center distance of 5 times the diameter of the cylinder. Results are computed for various values of reduced velocities (1 to 8). The downstream cylinder, of mass ratio 10, is allowed to execute oscillations in both in-line and transverse directions, whereas the upstream cylinder is stationary. Response curve of downstream cylinder is observed to be composed of initial and lower branches. Phenomenon of lock-in is identified at a reduced velocity of 5. Nature of flow exhibits periodicity for the entire range of initial branch with single dominant lift frequency. For reduced velocity near the end of lock-in, flow and body motion shows quasi-periodic behavior with complicated non-overlapping loops in the cylinder trajectory as well as in the ...

The ratio of the diameter of first cylinder to that of the second cylinder (D<sub>1</sub>/D<sub>2</sub>) is kept constant at 0.8. The cylinder centers are separated by a distance S (= 5D<sub>1</sub>). The computations were carried out at Reynolds number (Re) = 100 over a range of reduced speed (U*). The fluid was assumed to be incompressible and flow to be two-dimensional. The flow equations were discretized using stabilized finite-element method and solved iteratively by Generalized Minimal RESidual (GMRES) technique. In the present work, the upstream cylinder is kept stationary while the downstream cylinder is allowed to traverse only across the flow. The observations focus the response, aerodynamic coefficients and flow features.

The upstream cylinder is fixed whereas the downstream cylinder is free to vibrate in the transverse direction only. The numerical simulations are carried for different values of reduced speeds, ranging from 1 to 8 while the Reynolds number remains fixed at Re=100. The blockage in the computational domain is taken as 2% and the mass ratio is unity. The non-dimensional gap-size between the centers of the two cylinders is taken to be 5 so that the downstream cylinder lies in the wake-interference zone. For the solutions, the governing equations are discretized with the aid of Finite Element Method (FEM) and the computation process is carried out using the Generalized Minimal RESidual (GMRES) iterative solver. The vortex shed from the upstream cylinder combines with the respective vortex of the downstream cylinder thereby adding to its strength. The flow remains periodic for ...
