The vortex-induced vibration of tandem arrangement of two cylinders compared with the single cylinder is more complicated, The double cylinder arranged in tandem, which is free to move in two degrees of freedom respectively, and which has low mass and damping. The present study shows that a critical centre-to-centre spacing can be used to distinguish the far and near wake interference. The streams in this test were uniform flow, ranging from 0.2m/s to 0.8m/s with the interval of 0.1m/s. The Re numbers are ranging from 22000 to 88000. The mass ratio of cylinder is low. For far wake interference, the downstream cylinder shows large amplitudes of response, therefore the wake induced vibration (WIV) is found. For near wake interference, both the upstream cylinder and downstream cylinder are exposed to an evident phenomenon of VIV, but the amplitude of upstream and downstream are less than that of single cylinders in cross-flow direction and in-line direction. We found the critical spacing to be 3.4 to 4.9.
