With given object dimensions and speed moving inside a fluid. How do i decide if vortex shedding will occur? It is sometimes obvious just to look at the speed and dimension and say it will not occur as its going too slow or vice versa. Is there formula or some mathematical criterion to predict vortex shedding?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you, Kent
