Abstract : The study is related to the flexible circular cylinder in the Reynolds number range from 30 to 500. The shedding features of flexible cables are studied and general characteristics of vortex shedding are interpreted from diagnostic observations. The study has two objectives: (1) to observe and analyze the vortex shedding features characteristic of a flexible cable that is flow-excited into standing wave oscillations; and (2) to perform a diagnostic investigation of the spanwise shedding phenomenon when the vortex shedding is both dependent and independent of the oscillating motion.
