Measurements are made of vortex-induced vibration of an elastically supported circular cylinder in water with reduced velocity (U/fnD) from 2 to 12, damping factors (ζ) from 0.2% to 40% of critical damping, mass ratios (m/ρD2) from π/2 to π/17, and transverse, inline, and combined inline and transverse motions at Reynolds numbers up to 150,000. Effects of mass, damping, Reynolds number, and strakes on vortex-induced vibration amplitude, frequency, entrainment, and drag are reported.
