Wind tunnel experiment showed that the Kármán vortex excitation of a circular and a square cylinder is effectively suppressed by setting another cylindrical body downstream in a cruciform arrangement with a certain gap between them, and that the galloping of a square cylinder is also completely suppressed by the downstream cylinder. However, a new oscillation is induced over a velocity range higher than that of the Kármán vortex excitation, caused by longitudinal vortices which shed periodically around the crossing. These interference effects of the downstream cylinder on the upstream cylinder oscillation are different depending on the cross-sectional configuration of the cylinders.
