This study investigates the effect of altering oscillation amplitude on time-mean and root-mean-square values of force coefficients when plotted against amplitude of oscillation. The cylinder is placed in a uniform flow and is oscillated mechanically in transverse or in-line direction. The two-dimensional numerical computations are carried out at Re = 140 and 160, at 90% of the natural vortex shedding frequency. For in-line oscillation, jumps were found in the time-mean values of lift and torque. Both abrupt and gradual alteration of amplitude in the course of a computation had the effect of keeping the solution in one state curve, i.e., of conserving state, or inhibiting changes in vortex structure. Transverse oscillation displayed no jumps, and alteration of amplitude had no effect on the solution.
