Abstract:

Literature on flow-induced vibrations of spheres, spheroids, short cylinders and other three-dimensional bluff bodies has been reviewed. Information considered pertinent to the analysis and design of large submerged cable structures subjected to currents in the deep ocean is consolidated and presented in an annotated bibliography. Of particular interest is the vortex shedding from, and vortex-induced motions of and forces on three-dimensional bodies representative of buoys, sensor packages and similar components of mid- ocean arrays. Since very little information was found that is directly applicable to analysis and design further research is recommended. Author
