VIV model test results are presented for a bundle of three parallel pipes all lying in the same plane, similar to a riser with large kill and choke lines. The rigid model was attached to a spring-mounted frame in the MIT towing tank. The horizontal model was towed in the tank and allowed to respond in free vibration to vortex-induced vibration in the cross-flow direction. The angle of attack of the model was varied from 0 to 90 degrees. The model was tested with and without helical strakes. Without strakes the model exhibited significant vibration at 0 and 90 degrees angle of attack. Strakes suppressed VIV at all angles of attack.
