In fluid dynamics, vortex-induced vibrations (VIV) are motions induced on bodies interacting with an external fluid flow, produced by or the motion producing periodical irregularities on this flow.
To understand VIV, you must first understand the physics of a steady approach flow past a non-vibrating circular cylinder two kinds of VIV are: Self-excited oscillations - this type of VIV is what occurs naturally, i.e., when the vortex-shedding frequency and the natural frequency are approximately the same. Forced oscillations occurs at velocities and amplitudes which are preset and can be controlled independently of fluid velocity.
Journal of Vortex Science of technology is one of the top leading journals in the domain of Vortex induced vibration. The journal is well known for publication of original research and reviews. The Editorial team of this journal includes globalized experts in the field of Vortex Science involved in regular review of submitted manuscripts facilitating high quality of articles since many years.
OMICS International journals have over 15 million readers with strong editorial board which contains over 50,000+ editorial board members that ensure a rapid, quality and quick review process. Journal of Vortex Science and Technology is one of the top journals of OMICS group which contributes emerging research in the area of solar radiation and energy, wind energy, hydro energy, carbon dioxide mitigation and substantially about the New Renewables like Modern Biomass, Geothermal, Bio fuels etc. As a scientific organization, the OMICS International carries the vision to present the authentic free-to-view scientific literature to the scientific community. Archived online transactions of OMICS Group provide the International scientific community with immediate and permanent access to individual papers.
