In this study a new two degrees-of-freedom wake oscillator model is proposed to describe vortex-induced vibrations of elastically supported cylinders capable of moving in cross-flow and in-line directions. Total hydrodynamic force acting on the cylinder is obtained here as a sum of lift and drag forces, which are defined as being proportional to the square… CONTINUE READING
