Vortex shedding patterns in flow past inline oscillating elliptical cylinder are simulated by lattice Boltzmann and direct forcing/fictitious domain method which is validated by finite volume method when this cylinder is fixed. The modes of vortex shedding are analyzed in detail by changing the amplitude and the frequency of oscillation by using the first method in this paper.
