Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

This paper describes the free vibration analysis of a thin disc vibrating and interacting with an acoustic medium contained in a cylindrical duct. The effects of structural-acoustic coupling are studied by means of an analytical-numerical method that is based upon classical theory and the Galerkin method. The coupling effects are discussed, and results obtained from the analysis are compared with corresponding values obtained both experimentally and from a finite element analysis. There is good agreement between the three sets of results.
