13.42 Lecture:Vortex Induced Vibrations

Prof. A. H. Techet

18 March 2004

If ignored, these vibrations can prove catastrophic to structures, as they did in the case of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940.

U(q) = 2Usinq

P(q) = 1/2 r U(q)2 = P + 1/2 r U2

Cp = {P(q) - P }/{1/2 r U2}= 1 - 4sin2q

- Flow speed outside wake is much higher than inside
- Vorticity gathers at downcrossing points in upper layer
- Vorticity gathers at upcrossings in lower layer
- Induced velocities (due to vortices) causes this perturbation to amplify

Von Karman Vortex Street

Alternately shed opposite signed vortices

St=fsd/U

fs is the shedding frequency, d is diameter and U inflow speed

- Reynolds Number
- subcritical (Re<105) (laminar boundary)

- Reduced Velocity
- Vortex Shedding Frequency
- S0.2 for subcritical flow

St = 0.2

Uo

Both Lift and Drag forces persist on a cylinder in cross flow. Lift is perpendicular to the inflow velocity and drag is parallel.

FL(t)

FD(t)

Due to the alternating vortex wake (“Karman street”) the oscillations in lift force occur at the vortex shedding frequency and oscillations in drag force occur at twice the vortex shedding frequency.

A cylinder is said to be “locked in” when the frequency of oscillation is equal to the frequency of vortex shedding. In this region the largest amplitude oscillations occur.

Damping

Lift force is sinusoidal component and residual force. Filtering the recorded lift data will give the sinusoidal term which can be subtracted from the total force.

LIFT FORCE:

where wvis the frequency of vortex shedding

Two components of lift can be analyzed:

Lift in phase with acceleration (added mass):

Lift in-phase with velocity:

Total lift:

(a = zois cylinder heave amplitude)

- If CLv > 0 then the fluid force amplifies the motion instead of opposing it. This is self-excited oscillation.
- Cma, CLvare dependent on w and a.

VIV tends to increase the effective drag coefficient. This increase has been investigated experimentally.

Cd = 1.2 + 1.1(a/d)

Cd occurs at twice the

shedding frequency.

Mooring lines and towing cables act in similar fashion to rigid cylinders except that their motion is not spanwise uniform.

t

Tension in the cable must be considered when determining equations of motion

Flexible Cylinder Motion Trajectories

Long flexible cylinders can move in two directions and

tend to trace a figure-8 motion. The motion is dictated by

the tension in the cable and the speed of towing.

‘2P’

- Shedding patterns in the wake of oscillating cylinders are distinct and exist for a certain range of heave frequencies and amplitudes.
- The different modes have a great impact on structural loading.

Williamson and Roshko (1988)

Vr = U/fd

Formation of ‘2P’ shedding pattern

Uniform Cylinder

Hover, Techet, Triantafyllou (JFM 1998)

Tapered Cylinder

Non-uniform currents effect the spanwise vortex shedding on a cable or riser.

The frequency of shedding can be different along length.

This leads to “cells” of vortex shedding with some length, lc.

No Split: ‘2P’

dmin

- ‘2P’ pattern results at the smaller end
- ‘2S’ pattern at the larger end
- This mode is seen to be repeatable over multiple cycles

Techet, et al (JFM 1998)

Digital particle image

velocimetry (DPIV) in the horizontal plane leads to a clear picture of two distinct shedding modes along the cylinder.

At e/d > 1 the wall effects are reduced.

Cd, Cm increase as e/d < 0.5

Vortex shedding is significantly effected by the wall presence.

In the absence of viscosity these effects are effectively non-existent.

Galloping is a result of a wake instability.

Resultant velocity is a combination of the heave velocity and horizontal inflow.

If wn << 2p fv then the wake is quasi-static.

Both torsional and lateral galloping are possible.

FLUTTER occurs when the frequency of the torsional

and lateral vibrations are very close.

- Galloping is low frequency
- Galloping is NOT self-limiting
- Once U > Ucritical then the instability occurs irregardless of frequencies.
