Hydrodynamic coefficients of cylinders fitted with strakes in oscillatory flows have been investigated. Three different pitch ratios have been tested, i.e. pitch ratios of infinity, 8 and 4. The cylinders are forced to oscillate in otherwise calm water in a water tank. To validate as well as to compare the experiment results, a smooth cylinder is included in the test matrix. Digital signal filtering has been found to influence the results obtained. Hence sine-fitted signals are used for obtaining the coefficients. For cylinders with strakes, it has been found that the coefficients vary little with Reynolds number. It is also concluded that the pitch ratio has a significant impact on the hydrodynamic coefficients.
