Selective Withdrawal in a Rotating Stratified Fluid
In this paper we consider the axisymmetric flow of a rotating stratified fluid into a point sink. Linear analysis of the initial value problem of flow of a linearly stratified fluid into...

An Elasticity Solution for a Transversely Isotropic Material Containing a Spherical Shell Under Arbitrary Axisymmetric Loading
A three-dimensional elasticity solution is obtained for a transversely isotropic solid containing an isotropic spherical membrane shell. Perfect bonding is assumed between the shell and...

Interaction of Elastic Waves with Axisymmetric Cavities in a Half Space: A Combined Finite Element-Boundary Integral Approach
A hybrid numerical method is presented to investigate the interaction of elastic waves with axisymmetric cavities on the surface of a half space. In this method the near field which consists...

Perturbation Solution to 3-D Nonlinear Cavity Flow Problems
A 3-D nonlinear problem of fully cavitating flow past an axisymmetric body at a small angle of attack is investigated by the perturbation method. The first three order perturbation equations...

Linear Elastic Finite Element Analysis of Axisymmetric Shells on Elastic Foundations
Thin-walled cylindrical silos containing compacted bulk solids show a significant increase in strength over empty silos under meridional compression. A finite element model is used which...

Engineering Applications of the Analysis of a Spherical Shell
In a companion paper, a set of two integral equations have been established for a spherical shell under axisymmetric loads. This set of equations may be solved numerically by using Nystrom...

Spherical Shells with Nonuniform Rigidity
An iterative finite difference technique is presented in this paper for the analysis of axisymmetric spherical shells with variable wall thickness. The proposed method of solution is based...

Diffraction Forces on Axisymmetric Bodies
Use of a Green function satisfying the governing differential equation and all boundary conditions except those on the boundary of the structure yields an integral equation, when these...
