The struts of a landing gear can be modeled as a tandem cylinder system where one cylinder is yawed to the mean flow direction. The current experimental investigation will examine the effect that yawing either the front or rear cylinder will have on the pressure fluctuations and associated unsteady flow field. This will be accomplished using 24 simultaneous unsteady wall pressure measurements on the cylinder wall. Two yaw angles will be examined here, α = 80° and α = 60°, for both the yawed upstream and yawed downstream cases.
