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.
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.
