Numerical simulations and sensitivity analysis are carried out regarding control vortex shedding from a circular cylinder using small rotating and non-rotating control cylinders. Prediction of the changes in unsteady wake, instability growth rate, and frequency produced by the control devices is presented in the framework of sensitivity analysis to steady field force. In the case of the rotating cylinders, this prediction relies on the observation that the small control cylinders introduce a steady force whose direction is not aligned to the base flow direction. This external force direction depends on the control cylinders rotation rates having an additional parameter to attain flow control. The evaluation of the control cylinders rotation rate within the sensitivity analysis framework is a novel contribution in this work. The results of the sensitivity analysis to a steady force are then compared to direct numerical simulation computations of the flow fields serving as supporting data for discussion.
