In this paper, torsional aeroelastic vibration is investigated by wind tunnel experiment and numerical analysis which incorporates 2-dimensional modified k-ε model. Experimental results shows that the torsional vortex-induced vibration are classified into several groups. Harmonics and of the Karman-vortex or impinging-shear-layer-instability are found to be involved with the occurrence mechanism of these instabilities. Two types of rectangular cross-sections are chosen to examine the applicability of the numerical method. Unsteady wind forces, pressure distribution and free vibrations are compared with experiments. Although the present method is 2-dimensional, vortex-induced vibrations and torsional flutter were well simulated by the method.
