Hydrodynamic forces on structures oscillating in still fluid

What is it about?

Numerical study of hydrodynamic forces on a cylinder executing two-dimensional oscillations in still fluid.

Why is it important?

The result is important is estimating fluid damping of structures oscillating at low amplitudes.

Perspectives

Dr Efstathios Konstantinidis

The result can be incorporated in industrial codes predicting flow-induced vibrations of long flexible pipes to account for fluid damping in power-out regions .
