Slender Structures and Axial Flow
- Michael Paidoussis, Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University, Canada, Fellow of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM).
The first of two books concentrating on the dynamics of slender bodies within or containing axial flow, Fluid-Structure Interaction, 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.
This volume has been thoroughly updated to reference the latest developments in the field, with a continued emphasis on the understanding of dynamical behaviour and analytical methods needed to provide long-term solutions and validate the latest computational methods and codes.
In this edition, Chapter 7 from Volume 2 has also been moved to Volume 1, meaning that Volume 1 now mainly treats the dynamics of systems subjected to internal flow, whereas in Volume 2 the axial flow is in most cases external to the flow or annular.
Engineers, researchers and graduate students across industries including mechanical, civil, aerospace, material, marine and offshore engineering involved in the analysis, maintenance and design of flexible structures that interact with internal and/or external fluid flow; Specialists in the fields of fluid-structure interaction, flow-induced vibration, dynamics and vibration.
