Fluid-Structure Interactions, Second Edition: Slender Structures and Axial Flow

Buy
This book deals with the dynamics of slender, mainly cylindrical or quasi-cylindrical, bodies in contact with axial flow—such that the structure either contains the flow or is immersed in it, or both. Dynamics is used here in its generic sense, including aspects of stability, thus covering both self-excited and free or forced motions associated with fluid-structure interactions in such configurations. Indeed, flow-induced instabilities—instabilities in the linear sense—namely, divergence and flutter—are a major concern of this book. However, what is rather unusual for books on flow-induced vibration, is that considerable attention is devoted to the nonlinear behaviour of such systems, e.g. on the existence and stability of limit-cyclemotions, and the possible existence of chaotic oscillations. This necessitates the introduction and utilization of some of the tools of modern dynamics theory.

Engineering examples of slender systems interacting with axial flow are pipes and other flexible conduits containing flowing fluid, heat-exchanger tubes in axial flow regions of the secondary fluid and containing internal flow of the primary fluid, nuclear reactor fuel elements, monitoring and control tubes, thin-shell structures used as heat shields in aircraft engines and thermal shields in nuclear reactors, jet pumps, certain types of valves and other components in hydraulic machinery, towed slender ships, barges and submarine systems, towed acoustic arrays used in underwater oil and gas exploration, brine strings in salt caverns used for storage of hydrocarbons, etc. Physiological examples may be found in the pulmonary and urinary systems and in haemodynamics.
