A three-dimensional numerical method combining solution of the incompressible Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations with a rigid body structural dynamics response has been developed previously to aid in the prediction of the loads and motions of offshore structures. In this paper, we use the tool to compute the hydrodynamic flow around two tandem cylinders oriented perpendicularly to each other. The flow conditions and gap distances between the cylinders are chosen to match a set of water tunnel experiments carried out at the University of Queensland. Comparisons of Strouhal frequencies and example flowfield visualizations are presented between the experimental measurements and associated CFD results.
