The interaction between cylinder oscillation and the shedding of vortices is investigated
numerically in this paper.
The near wake structure is presented for different values of reduced
velocity of a cylinder free to oscillate transversely.
One of the objectives of this paper is to
compare the numerical results with experimental data obtained by Parra  in the water tank
facility of IPT/University of Sao Paulo.
The attraction of applying numerical methods to this
problem is that the way the flow is modified can be studied in closer detail.
In the computer it is
possible to investigate many different f...
