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