Literature in Vortex-Induced Oscillations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A literature review is provided in this chapter of vortex-induced oscillations. While the literature is vast, our review is selective but representative of the field. Reviewed are: (i) experimental studies on: fluid forces, three-dimensionality and free-surface effects, vortex-shedding modes and synchronization regions, frequency dependence of the added mass, the dynamics of cylinders with low mass-damping; (ii) semi-empirical models: wake-oscillator, single degree-of-freedom, force decomposition; (iii) variational approaches; and (iv) numerical approaches.
