Abstract: This paper presents an experimental investigation on suppression of cross-flow vibrations of two circular cylinders in tandem arrangement, conducted at the fluid mechanics laboratory of Kitami Institute of Technology, Japan. To suppress the vibrations of the cylinders, tripping wires were deployed, attached symmetrically about the leading stagnation lines of the cylinders. Five spacing ratios were examined, i.e., L/D=0.1, 0.3, 0.8, 2.0 and 3.2 (L is the gap spacing between the two cylinders; D is the diameter of cylinder), which are representative for five Regimes I (0.1≤L/D<0.2), II (0.2≤L/D<0.6), III (0.6≤L/D<2), IV (2≤L/D<2.7) and V (L/D≥2.7), respectively, as classified in Part 1 [Kim et al., 2009. Flow-induced vibrations of two circular cylinders in tandem arrangement (part 1: characteristics of vibration). Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, submitted together for publication]. Tripping wire position θ measured from the leading stagnation lines of the cylinders was changed from 20° to 60° to determine the optimum range of θ for suppressing structural vibrations. The shear layers separated from the two cylinders were investigated based on flow visualization. The main findings are: (i) the flow-induced vibration on the two cylinders depends strongly on θ, (ii) at θ=20-30° the vibrations on both cylinders are almost completely suppressed for all regimes except V, and (iii) for θ≥40° the vibration amplitudes of both cylinders are considerably larger than those of the plain cylinders, particularly at θ=40°, where the vibration of the upstream cylinder becomes divergent.
