Document Type: Journal Paper
With reference to problem of designing tall stacks wind tunnel investigations were made to determine dynamic behavior of cylindrical sections under action of wind at high Reynold's numbers; results show that wind induced vibration normal to direction of wind is self excited rather than forced; basic aerodynamic phenomenon associated with higher critical velocity is not presently understood.
