Mechanics of Flow-Induced Sound and Vibration, Volume 1, Second Edition: General Concepts and Elementary Sources
Mechanics of Flow-Induced Sound and Vibration: General Concepts and Elementary Sources, Volume One: Second Edition, enables readers to fully understand flow-induced vibration and sound, unifying the disciplines of fluid dynamics, structural dynamics, vibration, acoustics, and statistics in order to classify and examine each of the leading sources of vibration and sound induced by various types of fluid motion.
The sources considered include jet noise, flow-induced tones, self-excited vibration, dipole sound from rigid and flexible acoustically compact surfaces, cavitation noise, acoustic transmission characteristics, and sound radiation from bubbly liquids.
Starting with classical theories of aeroacoustics and hydroacoustics, a formalism of integral solutions valid for sources near boundaries is developed and then broadened to address the different source types mentioned above. Step-by-step derivations clearly identify any assumptions made throughout.
Each chapter is illustrated with comparisons of leading formulas and measured data. The extensive reference lists are intended to support all chapters of the book with up-to-date background and additional information. The formalisms developed are suitable for computer modeling, and along with its companion book, Mechanics of Flow-Induced Sound and Vibration: Complex Flow-Structure Interactions, covers everything an engineer needs to understand flow-induced sound and vibration.
