Periodic wake shedding or more generally vortex shedding may be a problem when the shedding frequency coincides with the natural frequency of a cylindrical structure. This coincidence may lead to resonance and large vibration amplitudes. Periodic-wake-shedding resonance has been observed by Pettigrew and Gorman (1978) in tube bundles subjected to liquid flows (Fig. 11-1).
