Vortex Induced Vibration

For the last few days I’ve tried to simulate flow over a circular cylinder at Re=22k using OpenFOAM. The cylinder is attached to a mass-damping system in one degree of freedom (cross-stream). The simulation only success when the natural frequency of the system is high, omega_o >= 2 x vortex shedding frequency. I believe that I need to work out on the resonant response of the system.

Basic OpenFOAM workshop



Dear All,

Thank you for your support and participations at the Basic OpenFOAM workshop. We’re planning to organise a series of similar workshop (increase in complexity) in the near future. Please be updated with any news on this. Our aim is to promote the use of OpenFOAM locally and providing a platform for discussion and knowledge sharing among the OpenFOAM community in Malaysia. If you have suggestion on how we can go for that, please don’t hesitate to drop me an email.
