This thesis proposes three new passive VIV suppression techniques. Analytical and numerical studies are carried out to examine the effectiveness of the proposed methods, and the results show that they are effective for VIV control. The proposed systems are based on or modified from the existing practices and can suppress the VIV without change too much of the existing designs, therefore, they are believed have potential applications.
