 March 16, 2011, 11:07 frequency of vortex shedding #1 Senior Member   Hassan Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 106 Rep Power: 8 hey can anybody tell me how can i calculate the frequency of vortex shedding... i am not using any software but have developed the code in FORTRAN... and i am analysing the flow over a cylinder.... i have all the results and code is working fine... just need to know how to calculate the vortex shedding as need to validate this .. Thanksss

The graph shows that CL varies periodically with respect to physical time. We can measure the periodic time (T) based on this graph. Then, can we determine the frequency of vortex shedding (f) based on the periodic time (T): f = 1/T? Best regards, Dave
