Vibration Problems in Hydraulic Structures

by F.B. Campbell,

Serial Information: Journal of the Hydraulics Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 2, Pg. 61-77

Document Type: Journal Paper


Report on findings of 12 yr of vibration investigations by Army Engineers civil works activities; results of laboratory and field tests; evidence of Coulomb damping is demonstrated and results are analyzed to determine constant friction force; Von Karman vortex trail, self-excitation involving reflecting pressure waves and other hydraulic pulsating phenomena are examined; conclusions are grouped in 7 points.
