Aeroelastic vibrations and stability of plates and shells by Sergey D. Algazin, Igor A. Kijko

By Sergey D. Algazin, Igor A. Kijko

Back-action of aerodynamics onto constructions reminiscent of wings reason vibrations and should resonantly couple to them, therefore inflicting instabilities (flutter) and endangering the entire constitution. via cautious offerings of geometry, fabrics and damping mechanisms, damaging results on wind engines, planes, generators and autos may be avoided.

Besides an advent into the matter of flutter, new formulations of flutter difficulties are given in addition to a treatise of supersonic flutter and of an entire variety of mechanical results. Numerical and analytical the way to learn them are constructed and utilized to the research of recent periods of flutter difficulties for plates and shallow shells of arbitrary aircraft shape. particular difficulties mentioned within the booklet within the context of numerical simulations are supplemented by means of Fortran code examples (available at the website).

The critical flutter velocity is obtained in the following way. 5) we obtain the inequality vx < vx(n) (α ) = ( D 1/2 α 2 + n2 π 2 ) . 6) For each n, the curves vx(n) (α ) have a minimum vx(n)min = 2nπ (D/ρ h)1/2 at α = nπ ; the lowest of all values is reached for n = 1, and we take the corresponding velocity vx(1)min as the critical velocity vx,cr = 2π ( C0 h π D 1/2 ) = , ρh √3(1 − ????2 ) a0 l where C0 = √E/ρ is the speed of sound for longitudinal waves in long, thin rods of the strip material.

However, it has long been noted that in the case of a plate elongated in the streamwise direction the effectiveness of the method deteriorates abruptly, and to reach some reasonable accuracy it is necessary to retain a considerable (generally speaking, unknown beforehand) number of terms in the approximating sum. The applicability of the Bubnov–Galerkin method to plate flutter problems in the general formulation has not yet been sufficiently studied. The results given below fill in this gap to some extent.
