The importance of the in-flow oscillation of a single cylinder in cross-flow has been in the spotlight since the accident in a FBR-type reactor. In-flow oscillations can also be observed in heat exchanger tube arrays. Previous reports show some interesting phenomena on the oscillation of cylinder arrays. In this paper, detailed observations on the effect of the pitch ratio for pairs of cylinders, in parallel and in tandem, is highlighted in the range of low flow velocities, where each cylinder can move only in a given direction. The motion of the cylinders is measured by attached strain gages and by a high-speed digital video camera.
