A dimensionless parameter, Su , is proposed which enables a clear presentation of vortex-induced vibration response data in sheared and uniform flows. The ability of the parameter to account for the effects of damping, flow velocity and power-in length is demonstrated with response data from an unusual set of experiments conducted by SHELL Development Co. The historical relationship of the new parameter to the earlier work of Owen Griffin is also presented.
