A tube array subjected to crossflow may become unstable by either one or both of the two basic mechanisms: velocity mechanism and displacement mechanism. An experimental and analytical study of tube rows in liquid crossflow is performed to verify the existence and transition between the two mechanisms at the intermediate values of mass-damping parameter. Experimental data and analytical results are found to be in good agreement.
