Mechanics of Flow-Induced Sound and Vibration, Volume 2: Complex Flow-Structure Interactions, 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.

Starting from classical theories of aeroacoustics and hydroacoustics, a formalism of integral solutions valid for sources near boundaries is developed and then broadened to address different source types, including hydrodynamically induced cavitation and bubble noise, turbulent wall-pressure fluctuations, pipe and duct systems, lifting surface flow noise and vibration, and noise from rotating machinery. Each chapter is illustrated with comparisons of leading formulas and measured data.

Combined with its companion book, Mechanics of Flow-Induced Sound and Vibration, Volume 1: General Concepts and Elementary Sources, the book covers everything an engineer needs to understand flow-induced sound and vibration. This book will be a vital source of information for postgraduate students, engineers and researchers with an interest in aerospace, ships and submarines, offshore structures, construction, and ventilation.

About the Author

William K. Blake

William K. Blake is currently a consultant to the U.S. Navy as well as the commercial marine and consumer industries, and an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland. Blake spent many years at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (formerly David Taylor Model Basin) at Bethesda, Maryland. His numerous contributions to US sea power and naval systems include research in ship hydroacoustics physics, development and application of advanced technology in submarine hull and propulsor ship components, and developing computational procedures. Blake was awarded the Doctor of Engineering, honoris causa, at the University of Notre Dame, in 1996, and the American Society of Naval Engineers Gold Medal in 2002, and he is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America in recognition of his achievements.
