Author’s previous work Wanderley [1] presented an efficient numerical method to investigate VIV phenomenon on circular cylinders. The numerical model solves the unsteady Reynolds Average Navier–Stokes equations for slightly compressible flows using the Beam–Warming implicit factored scheme. In the present work, the effect of the turbulence model on the results is evaluated for both Baldwin Lomax and k-ε models. To demonstrate the quality of the numerical method, results for the transversal oscillation of a cylinder laterally supported by spring and damper are compared with experimental data. The application of the turbulence models showed the much better agreement of the k-ε model with the experimental results.
