Application of Ultrasonic Velocity Profiler (UVP) in the Vortex-induced Vibration Experiments

The flow parameters in the near wake of the rigid and flexible protruding surface were investigated using an ultrasonic velocity profiler (UVP). The tests were carried out in a water tunnel. The cylinder’s motion has a big impact on how well turbulence enhancement works. An ordered oscillating motion favours better turbulence enhancement performance. This study shed light on the turbulence characteristics of flow around a fully three-dimensional flexible cantilever, where three velocity components can be measured using a combination of two or three UVP probes.
