Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

The free vibration of a circular membrane in interaction with a fluid contained in a cylindrical boundary is analysed. The fluid is compressible and assumed inviscid. The resulting modal parameters are described by non-dimensionalised frequencies, mode shape coefficients and relative modal energy levels between that of the membrane and the fluid. A simplified “bar” model is introduced as a means of describing the characteristics of membrane/fluid strong interaction between axisymmetric modes of the membrane and axial modes of the fluid column only.
