Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

When carrying out a vibration modal analysis of a structure it is usually assumed that the structure is in vacuo. However as structures become increasingly light and thin walled due to the development of high grade corrosion resistant alloys, this fundamental assumption is becoming increasingly strained. In this paper we will highlight the analysis and the implications of structural/fluid interaction on modal analysis for the purpose of prediction of dynamic response and for vibration health monitoring.
