Article: Viscous Theory for the Vibrations of Coaxial Cylinders: Analytical Formulas for the Fluid Forces and the Modal Added Coefficients

This article addresses the small-amplitude forced beam vibrations of two coaxial finite-length cylinders separated by a viscous Newtonian fluid. A new theoretical approach based on an Helmholtz expansion of the fluid velocity vector is carried out, leading to a full analytical expression of the fluid forces and subsequently of the modal added mass and damping coefficients. Our theory shows that the fluid forces are linear combinations of the Fourier harmonics of the vibration modes.

Openings for PhD students and PostDoctoral fellows at NYU-Poly

The Dynamical Systems Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University is seeking to recruit multiple Post-Doctoral fellows and Ph.D. students in fluid-structure interactions, mechanics of composite materials, and vibrations.

SIMULIA announces new features in Abaqus 6.10

For those of you looking for FSI simulation on Abaqus platform, recently Simulia has announced the new features in release 6.10, which introduces the capability for performing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation.
So it enables users to perform coupled physics simulations with
Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, such as fluid-structure
interaction between human tissue, a medical device, and fluid flow, more information:


Wing flutter analysis using fluid structure interaction technique


I am trying to do flutter analysis for a wing using fluid structure interaction technique. I know that I need to do simultaneous coupling but couldn't figure out how to do it. Can anyone here give some more detail guide on how I should do it. I am using ANSYS and ANSYS CFX. There is tutorial that come with the software but it is not about flutter analysis.
