Abstract:

The report is an engineering guide to the use of the Dyer method of manual computation and to several computer programs for determining turbulence- induced vibration and radiation of finite plates in air and in water. Both simple and clamped boundary conditions are treated. The Dyer method and the computer programs are presented in a series of appendixes Bolt Beranek and Newman manual method Boeing program I Electric boat program Underwater sound laboratory program Boeing program II - finite element. The documentation is intended to facilitate the performance of flow-induced vibroacoustic computations as well as to furnish the groundwork for future research. In the broader view, the documentation represents the initial steps of an effort to use computer programs to bridge the gap between vibroacoustic research results and design needs for structures that are subject to excitation by turbulence.
