Numerical simulation of vortex-induced-vibrations (VIV) of an elastically supported rigid circular cylinder in a fluid cross-flow has been thoroughly studied over the past years, both from the experimental and numerical points of view, because of its theoretical and practical interest in the understanding of flow-induced vibrations problems. In this context, the present paper aims at exposing a numerical study based on a coupled fluid-structure simulation, compared with previously published studies [34], [36]. The computational procedure relies on a partitioned method ensuring the coupling between fluid and structure solvers. The fluid solver involves a moving mesh formulation for simulation of the interface motion. Energy exchanges between both systems are ensured through convenient coupling schemes. The present study is devoted to a low Reynolds number configuration ( Re = 100). Cylinder motion magnitude, hydrodynamic forces, oscillation frequency and fluid vortex shedding modes are investigated with the intention to observe the “lock-in” phenomenon. These numerical simulations are proposed for code validation purposes prior to industrial applications to tube bundle configurations [4].
