Research Abstract 
In this research, some considerations have been made on the hydrodynamic behavior of a submerged tubular concrete bridge, anchored to the sea bed by the tensiontype mooring system of plane framework. The main girder has the elliptic cross sections with thickness ratio of 2 and the framework is composed of a number of steel tubes linked together at their ends by universal joints. The dynamic characteristics of this structural system was clarified analytically by using a modified transfer matrix method. Next, a discrete vortex method was employed for the analysis of the twodimensional unsteady separated flow past the bluff body in a stationary state. Thereby, the opening angles of the separation points were roughly estimated from the mapping of the experimentally obtained ones of a cylinder for a postsupercritical range of Reynolds number by Joukowski transformation. The summary of the results obtained for the incidence, alpha, over the range, 0ﾟ*alpha*5ﾟ,is : (1) The time average of drag coefficient <@DAC<@D2D@>D2(/)@>DA is roughly taken to stay constant, <@DAna(/)@>DAmely, C<@D2D@>D2<similar or equal> (2) The time averages of lift and moment coefficients, <@DAC<@D2L@>D2(/)@>DA,<@DAC<@D2M@>D2(/)@>DA,change linearly with incidence alpha, namely, <@DAC<@D2L@>D2(/)@>DA<similar or equal>0.054alpha and <@DAC<@D2M@>D2(/)@>DA<similar or equal>0 (3) The Strouhal number S_h does not change with incidence alpha, S_h<similar or equal>0.36. (4) The ratio of the natural frequency, f_n, of flexural oscillation in the vertical plane of the structural system to the vortex shedding frequency, f_s, is, f_s/f_n = (V_r・S_h)^<1> <similar or equal>3.6, where V_r is the reduced velocity.
