Abstract

This paper describes the free vibration analysis of a cylindrical gas cavity axially bounded at one end by a liquid interface and a thin elastic disc at the other end. Natural frequencies of the complete liquid/gas/structural coupled system are calculated for pre-set degrees of uncoupling.
