Results of an experimental investigation on fluid flow past an elastically mounted circular cylinder with rectangular surface roughness strips are presented. Flow characteristics change depending on the strip width, roughness grit size, and location. Roughness size and distribution can be designed to enhance or reduce/suppress VIV amplitude and increase or reduce the range of synchronization, respectively. To the authors’ knowledge this is the first study in passive control of VIV using properly distributed roughness.
