Abstract:

Various methods are presented for computing heavy or light fluid loading i.e., added mass of thin finite rectangular plates. Based on the results, preferred methods of computation are recommended. These methods and a corresponding computer program are of particular value in extending previously formulated digital computer programs for obtaining the vibroacoustic response to turbulence excitation of a plate. Computer results are given for a particular case involving the effect of fluid loading on the vibratory response of a plate subject to turbulence excitation.
