A critique of non-linear oscillator models is offered and a systematic and self-consistent procedure for constructing such a model is proposed based upon theoretical and experimental fluid mechanical information. Numerical studies are conducted for the proposed model as well as for the earlier one of Skop and Griffin (1973). A comparison with Jones' (1969) experimental results is also made
