It is known that a splitter plate can moderate the vortex formation behind a cylinder, and consequently the vibration behavior of the cylinder and the plate. This paper uses the standard k-ε model and a modified wall function to simulate the flow-induced vibration of a 2D cylinder-plate system in a cross flow. Good agreement between available measurements and calculations is obtained for a single cylinder in a cross flow at Reynolds numbers up to 10 5. The flow-induced vibration of a cylinder-plate system in a cross flow is attempted using the same numerical method. It is possible to replicate the vibration behavior for the cylinder and the splitter plate, even though quantitative agreement with measurements is not obtained.
