AbstractVegetation association plays important role in the shallower coastal zone for sediment control and the nutrient and carbon absorption. It is necessary to understand the fluid motion including turbulence in the vegetation so that we may evaluate precisely shallow water region including vegetation and wet land. As the first step of research on fluid motion in the vegetation, circular cylinders are sometimes used. Many researches on the fluid force acting on the circular cylinder and fluid motion around the cylinder have been achieved so far. However, the properties of turbulent flow induced around circular cylinders in a wave, especially turbulence transition mechanism and spatial-temporal distribution of turbulence, are not almost investigated. The purpose of this study is to understand the fluid flow including turbulent induced by wave transmitting vegetation association. In this study fluid motion was measured by oscillating circular cylinder arrays in a tank by using the PTV technique.
