Drag coefficients of vibrating synthetic rope
Charnews, Daniel Paul
MetadataShow full item record
The drag, amplitude, frequency tension, diameter and length of synthetic ropes vibrating because of vortex-induced forces, and net vibrating at different tensions were measured. Photographs were taken of the vortices. Drag coefficients were calculated and plotted against Reynolds Number. The measured frequency is compared with data from other sources. The measured diameter is compared with that calculated from conservation of volume.
