The prediction and measurement of vortex-excited vibrations and associated fluid forces are important in such ocean engineering applications as the determination of the flow-induced lift and drag forces on sea floor pipelines and structural members, tow and mooring cables, and suspended pipelines which must be known in order to implement proper design procedures and to prevent costly failures. This paper discusses a study wherein measurements were made of the response characteristics and flow… CONTINUE READING
