This paper examines experimentally the dynamical behavior of a flexible slender cylinder in axial flow, perturbed harmonically in time. Parametric resonance oscillations were found to exist over certain ranges of frequencies and amplitudes of flow-velocity perturbations. The most prominent of the resonances, in these experiments, were associated with the second-mode principal primary resonance, and were studied extensively. Agreement with theory was found to be quite good.
