OF A TRANSVERSELY ISOTROPIC SOLID BAR

IMMERSED IN AN INVISCID FLUID

Effect of rotation in a axis symmetric vibration of a finite, homogeneous
transversely isotropic solid bar immersed in a fluid is studied using the linearized, threedimensional
theory of elasticity. The equations of motion of solid and fluid are respectively
formulated using the constitutive equations of a transversely isotropic solid bar and the
constitutive equations of an inviscid fluid. Two displacement potentional functions are
introduced to uncouple the equations of motion. The computed non-dimensional frequency,
phase velocity and attenuation are presented in the form of dispersion curves for the material
Zinc.
Keywords: rotating bar; free vibration of transversely isotropic bar; elastic rods loaded with fluid; wave propagation in a cylinders immersed in a fluid |
