Aeroelastic stability of cylindrical shells subjected to a rotating flow


Journal Article

It is experimentally demonstrated that a cylindrical shell subjected to a rotating flow may become dynamically unstable. The flutter motion takes the form of a circumferentially traveling wave. The data confirm qualitatively earlier theoretical predictions, although further refinement of the theoretical modeling of the fluid motion is desirable in order to improve the quantitative agreement between theory and experiment. © 1974 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.
