Numerous experimental and numerical studies have been carried out to better understand and to improve prediction of cylinder VIV (vortex Induced Vibration) phenomenon. The behavior of cylinder due to in-line vibration (VIVx) has been neglected in the earlier studies because of its lower amplitude in comparison with cross flow vibration (VIVy). However, some researchers have studied VIVx in 2DOF along with VIVy. Recent investigations show that response amplitude of structure caused by VIVx is large enough to bring it to consideration. This study focuses on understanding the origin and prediction of VIVx amplitude exclusively in 1DOF and subcritical flow regime. The experiments were performed in current channel on bare circular cylinder with low mass-damping ratio in Reynolds number range Re = 10000 ∼ 45000.
