An implicit finite difference scheme in primitive variables is used for analysis of unsteady, laminar flow past transversely vibrating cylinders. Predictions of flow past an impulsively started cylinder and of vortex shedding from a stationary cylinder agree well with experimental data. Calculations of flow past a transversely vibrating cylinder were within the range of experimental scatter only for small vibration amplitudes. Several experimentally observed phenomena such as drag amplification and reduction in excitation lift coefficient at large vibration amplitudes were numerically predicted.
