I have a doubt. If I am calculating vortex shedding frequency from the data or graph of lift coefficient, do I need to multiply it by two?
I got this question by seeing a tutorial by FLUENT available on cornell.confluence website. I am simulating flow over circular cylinder and not getting proper Strouhal number.

Thank You in advance...
