The response amplitude and the non-dimensional frequency of flexible cylinder vortex-induced vibrations from laboratory and field experiments show significant trends with increasing Reynolds number from 103 to 2 * 105. The analysis uses complex data from experiments with wide variations in the physical parameters of the system, including length-to-diameter ratios from 82 to 4236, tension dominated natural frequencies and bending stiffness dominated natural frequencies, sub-critical and critical Reynolds numbers, different damping coefficients, standing wave and traveling wave vibrations, mode numbers from 1 – 25th, and different mass ratios.
