Fluid-Structure Interactions: Volume 1: Slender Structures and Axial Flow


Fluid-Structure Interactions: Volume 1: Slender Structures and Axial Flow Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fluid-structure interaction (FSI) is the interaction of some movable or deformable structure with an internal or surrounding fluid flow. Fluid-structure interactions are a crucial consideration in the design of many engineering systems, for example aircraft, pipe networks and bridges. Failing to consider the effects of oscillatory interactions can be catastrophic, especially in structures comprising materials susceptible to fatigue.

Rapid developments in the fields of computational fluid dynamics and computational structural dynamics since the first edition of this highly-regarded reference mean that a new edition is now needed to bring the set up to date with current methods and approaches.

The first of two volumes concentrating on the dynamics of slender bodies within or containing axial flow, Volume 1 covers the fundamentals and mechanisms giving rise to flow-induced vibration, with a particular focus on the challenges associated with pipes conveying fluid.

. Provides an in-depth introduction to and review of an extensive range of fluid-structure interaction topics, with detailed real-world examples in every chapter, appendices containing equations relevant to specific problems and numerous references for additional detail

Unique in its analysis of slender structures-no other reference focuses on this topic with such completeness and authority

Written to be accessible to anyone with an undergraduate education in mechanics, providing a valuable resource on this critical yet complex topic for non-specialists across all engineering disciplines

Content is organized by structure and problem type, allowing readers to dip into the sections that are relevant to the particular problem they are facing

Supports development of long-term solutions by focusing on the fundamentals and mechanisms-avoiding situations where system failure due to fluid-structure interaction is solved without sufficient understanding of the cause of the original problem or operating conditions under which the solution might not prove effective

Addition of new references, numerical methods and recent applications bring this monumental work up to date with research and developments since the first editions published

Two volumes of the set are complementary but have distinct content and can be used practically as independent information sources
