[en] The wake development of a pivoted circular cylinder undergoing vortex-induced vibrations with elliptical trajectories is examined experimentally at a fixed Reynolds number of 3027 and mass ratio of 10.8. Simultaneous cylinder displacement measurements and time-resolved, two-component particle image velocimetry in multiple horizontal and vertical planes are used to quantify the structural response and wake development. The selected test cases pertain to and 7.08, and exhibit different orientations of elliptical cylinder trajectory, both with a clockwise direction of orbiting. Three-dimensional reconstructions of the phase-averaged wake velocity measurements reveal 2S shedding along the span of a stationary cylinder and hybrid shedding for the two vibrating cylinder cases, with planar wake topology transitioning from 2S to P+S to 2S for , and 2S to P+S for 7.08. The observed wake topologies show significant deviation from predictions based on the Morse and Williamson (J Fluids Struct 25(4):697–712, 2009) shedding map. Vortex identification and strength quantification are used to provide insight into vortex dynamics and to propose a model of the dislocations. Examination of the time averaged wake characteristics shows the formation length, wake half-width, and maximum velocity deficit exhibit distinct spanwise trends aligning with the regions associated with specific shedding regimes.
