Abstract
A global stabilityanalysis is performed for the flip-flopping wake pattern behind two side-by-side cylinders with emphasis on the unstable vorticity field. The combination of direct numerical simulation with the state-of-art lattice Boltzmann method and dynamic mode decomposition is used to analyse such wake pattern for the first time. The vorticity mode of the secondary instability is extracted from the flow. Such mode is found to be symmetrical with respect to the geometric axis of symmetry. Furthermore, a new scenario is found for the high order harmonics that there is a pair of two tertiary modes as a result of nonlinear interaction between the mode related to the secondary instability and the global mode of the in-phase synchronized vortex shedding base flow. Besides, the reason for the Fourier spectra of the lift on the two cylinders being the same is also illustrated for this case.
