Need help finding the name of a fluid mechanics/frequency graph

  1. Jun 2, 2013 #1
    Someone showed me a graph that has to do with how a cylinder oscillates in uniform flow, starting from no oscillation, to high oscillation, back to none. I know the y-axis is amplitude/diameter and the x-axis is velocity / (natural frequency X diameter)

    I would just like to find out more information but I don't know where to look. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Try a google search for "flow around oscillating cylinder" ;)

    That may give you the results you want. I suspect you'll find the root phenomenon faster though if you search for "Karman Vortex Street"

    Searching Strouhal number may also be of interest.
