Model tests were carried in a towing tank to examine the motion response of a rotating cylinder in currents. The cylinder model diameter is 0.10 m and its length 1 m. It is supported on a vertical cantilever rod and a DC motor is used to rotate the cylinder. The reduced velocity is in the range from 3 to 9 and the ratio between current velocity and cylinder surface velocity is between 0.5 and infinity. Both VIV and orbiting motions were observed and some measured motion results are presented and discussed in the paper.
