Abstract:

Vortex shedding of circular cylinders in uniform cross flow may be prevented by the installation of a radially extending plate, which is rigidly attached to the cylinder. The principle of vortex shedding prevention by such a splitter plate is explained and the minimum dimensions of the plate are theoretically derived and compared with experimentally found values.
