Abstract

When a cylinder is placed in uniform flow, vortexes are alternately shed from each side of the cylinder, and hence a regular vortex street is generated in the wake. This vortex street is named the Karman vortex after Theodore von Karman who theoretically proposed that the vortex street is stable when the ratio of the width of the vortex street b to the spacing between the vortexes a is 0.281.
