Key Features

  • Helps ensure smooth plant operations
  • Explains the structure, evaluation method and mechanisms
  • Shows how to avoid vibrations in future plant design


In many plants, vibration and noise problems occur due to fluid flow, which can greatly disrupt smooth plant operations. These flow-related phenomena are called flow-induced vibration.

This book explains how and why such vibrations happen and provides hints and tips on how to avoid them in future plant design.

The world-leading author team doesn’t assume prior knowledge of mathematical methods and provides the reader with information on the basics of modeling.

The book includes several practical examples and thorough explanations of the structure, the evaluation method and the mechanisms to aid understanding of flow-induced vibrations.

Quotes and reviews

"...a very well done introductory text covering a broad spectrum of the FIV topic in a helpful, illuminating and organized manner…an excellent starting point for steering a practitioner toward the correct classification of their individual FIV problem..."--Noise Control Engineering Journal, Flow-Induced Vibrations

"Researchers…decided it was time to compile the research reported on the phenomenon for the past quarter century, emphasizing information that can be used in designing systems…The second edition also contains new chapters on vibrations in rotary machines, and vibrations in fluid-structure interaction systems."--ProtoView.com, April 2014
