To give a considerable time reduction in the calculation of the vortex velocity and in the CPU time, discrete vortex modelling of flows using overlapping grid system for two tandem cylinders is carried out. This simple and time efficient method gives a better scatter of surface vorticity as the vortices around the body are now calculated on grid point. This research is to simulate the loading on structural elements of the structures due to their interaction with anodes or with other members. To show the flow phenomena and interactions involved, the in-line and transverse force coefficients are presented. The comparison of the results with experimental and numerical results and the range for good results is presented.
