In the experiment reported here, the elastoid-inertia oscillations of several modes are induced as resonant states by a specially designed apparatus. The patterns of the flow field and resonant frequencies are examined by means of visualization techniques. The experimental results are compared with those of the inviscid linear theory. It is found that both the frequencies and flow patterns of the actual elastoid-inertia oscillations can be well estimated by the linear theory.
