This paper presents the results of a test series to study the vibration behavior of a normal triangular tube bundle subjected to two-phase Freon cross flow. A normal triangular tube bundle of pitch over diameter ratio of 1.5 was tested over a broad range of void fractions and mass fluxes. Fluidelastic instabilities, random turbulence excitation, and damping were investigated. The results were compared with those obtained for a similar tube bundle tested in an air-water cross flow and to those for a rotated triangular bundle similarly tested in Freon.
