VORTEX SHEDDING FROM SMOOTH CYLINDERS AND STRANDED CABLES

This technical brief reports the results of some initial experiments concerned with the effects of cable stranding on the vortex shedding frequency and the effects of transverse vibrations on the vortex formation behind cables. Measurements were made at Reynolds numbers 240 and 500 in the transition and irregular ranges of vortex shedding, for five bodies; a smooth circular cylinder and four cable models with different stranding characteristics.
