Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Three-dimensional fluid-structure interaction (FSI) simulations are conducted on a vertical riser with a length-to-diameter ratio L/D = 481.5. Important vortex-induced vibration (VIV) parameters including the amplitude responses, orbital trajectories, oscillation frequencies and vorticity contours are presented. The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation results are in good agreement with published experimental data. The riser exhibits a dual-resonant response. Two different vortex shedding mode is observed, i.e., 2P and 2S modes. 2P mode is associated with the maximum transverse amplitude and 2S mode is observed elsewhere along the riser.
