Equations for the absolute dimensions of the Karman vortex street are developed in terms of the coefficient of drag and the Strouhal number of the vortex shedding bluff body. The body is assumed to be of large slenderness ratio and of uniform cross section. The predicted vortex spacings are compared with the experimental results of other investigators for circular cylinders, flat plates, and a wedge.
