At the predicted flow field around a circular cylinder in forced transverse oscillation is verified with experimental results. For coupled torsional and transverse oscillation cases, the numerical results indicate that lock-in depends on the relative phase between torsional and translational oscillations. The dynamic response of an elastically mounted circular cylinder in cross flow, obtained by solving the structural equations simultaneously with the Navier-Stokes equations, is in reasonable agreement with experimental data. The dynamic response results indicate that the change of wake pattern from 2S to 2P with increased frequency ratio, is not always simultaneous with the change in the relative phase between lift force and cylinder displacement.
