Document Type: Journal Paper


The problem of flow-induced structural vibration is characterized mainly by interdependence of structural deformation and fluid-dynamic loading. The analytical and physical nature of this problem, designated as fluidelasticity, is examined and exemplified, thereby developing a framework useful in unifying an otherwise heterogeneous group of vibration phenomena. The performance of timely model studies is emphasized.
