The selected papers appearing in this Special Section of the Journal were presented at the 2011 ASME–PVP Symposium on Flow-Induced Vibration (FIV) held in Baltimore, MD in 2011. The Symposium has, over the years, been a valuable forum for researchers and engineers in the industry to share and discuss new developments and insights into flow-induced vibrations. This Special Section of the Journal is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Frantisek L. Eisinger, a specialist in acoustically induced vibrations, a key member of the FIV community, and co-developer of most of the past Symposia.

Flow-induced vibration remains the cause of costly failures in the nuclear and process industries. While reasonably reliable design guidelines have been established, much work remains to be done. With increasing demand on new power plant components, new problems have come to light. Fundamental questions also remain on classical problems, including fretting-wear damage...
