This paper reviews the vortex-induced oscillations in a few specific fundamental cases. Research topics discussed are vortex shedding from a stationary bluff body; consequences of the synchronization phenomenon; wake-oscillator models; added mass, damping, and dynamic response measurements; flow-field models and the discrete-vortex method; mechanism of synchronization; and, finally, in-line oscillations. Because of the selective nature of the review, a fairly comprehensive listing of recent contributions to the literature on these and related aspects of flow-induced oscillations research is an essential part of the exposition.
