This paper presents an unsteady-flow theory for flow-induced vibration of tubes in cross-flow. It includes a general description of motion-dependent fluid forces, characteristics of fluid-force coefficients, and mathematical models. Detailed results are presented for the constrained mode in the lift direction for various tube arrangements.
