The behaviour of currents flowing around obstacles is examined. The vortices behind the object are not stationary, but are taken away by the current caused by its internal friction. At their point of origin only new vortices develop which detach from the object and start to migrate. All in all a vortex street occurs behind an obstacle in such a flow. Kármán's stability criterion is described and compared with experimental results.
