June 13, 2022 at 12:48 pmmmdSubscriberHi, I'm trying to simulate a movement of a ball attached to a string in water free stream by 6ِDOF solver. According to equilibrium equations (has been attached) we know final position of the ball. I got correct answers in The X،Y plane My question is why I got a lot of movements in the Z direction
I will be grateful for any help

I don't understand your mean by ''shedding''. I would be grateful if you explain more.

At certain flow regimes (particularly low Re) these vortices will generate fluctuating pressure (then forces) around the body which can cause it to oscillate.
Considering your Re number is relatively low and a sphere is not a streamlined shape, this is probably what's happening here; as was pointed out by Robert.
