Theory for aeolian tone intensity created by rigid circular cylinders has been found to agree quite well with experimental results. This investigation is to experimentally explore the wake of a cylinder shedding vortices at a frequency that is equal to one of the natural vibrational frequencies of the cylinder. Investigation was carried out in the following areas: 1, lateral spacial correlation of vortex shedding; 2. distance behind cylinder and value of RMS velocity at assumed position where vortices start to "roll up"; 3. observation of the phase between velocity signals at two points along a cylinder.
