The effects of turbulence on the aerodynamic properties of two-dimensional rectangular prisms (II)—Elastically supported case

  • Sun Yawei


The effects of turbulence on the aerodynamic properties, especially surface-pressure spectra and vortex-induced vibrations, of two-dimensional rectangular prisms with slenderness ratios of 2 and 4 are investigated experimentally. Particular attention is given to turbulence integral scale effects from the view-point of energy distribution in frequency domain.
