PIPING SYSTEMS AND SHELLS:
VIBRATION AND SOUND RADIATION

Computation and analysis of the vibrations of piping systems is a complex problem that can be successfully solved by:

     1. Choosing correctly between numerous shell theories,
     2. Understanding the physics of flow separation at elbows,
bends, etc.
     3. Accurately describing fluid-structure interactions.

The MECHMATH team has extensive experience in computing the dynamics and sound radiation of shells and piping systems. We employ numerical and semi-analytical methods as well as Statistic Energy Analysis.

Successful vibration control of shells and piping systems is based on dynamics analysis and rational choice of treatment(s) and their optimal application.

MECHMATH suggests the best solutions for vibration control based on our experience and computations.

Sound radiation from piping systems can be reduced by the rational application of sound absorbers (above picture demonstrates application choices) and/or structural vibration insulators (below).
