Document Type: Journal Paper


Investigation made to evolve means of suppressing dangerous, wind induced oscillation of tall steel smokestacks; tests of plain and modified cylinders made over wide range of cylinder flexibility at subcritical Reynolds numbers in water channel established that enclosure of cylinder within concentric perforated shroud was most effective vibration suppressor of profile modifications investigated.
