Periodic flow about bluff bodies. part 1: Forces on cylinders and spheres in a sinusoidally oscillating fluid
MetadataShow full item record
The in-line and transverse forces acting on cylinders and the in-line force acting on spheres placed in a sinusoidally oscillating fluid have been measured. The periodic flow was generated in a U-shaped vertical water channel through the use of a pneumatic oscillator.
Part of the results have been presented at the 14th International Conference on Coastal Engineering, Copenhagen Denmark, June 24-28, 1974.
