Vibration Problems in Hydraulic Structures

by Frank B. Campbell,

Serial Information: Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers, 1962, Vol. 127, Issue 1, Pg. 1-16

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.
