Three-dimensional simulations of incompressible and viscous flow around tandem circular cylinders at Re = 20000 in unstable oscillations can be carried out by means of finite difference method without any turbulence model. The numerical response behaviors are in good agreement with the previous experimental ones. The mechanism of negative damping force in vortex-induced oscillations and wake-galloping is investigated.
