Unformatted text preview: E = 30 x 106 psi υ = 0.3 ρ = 7.4167 x 10-4 lb-sec2/in4 For water: C = 57480 in/sec (speed of sound in water) ρ = 9.6333 x 10-5 lb-sec2/in4 Geometric Properties a = 10 in b = 30 in t = .25 in Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes For this problem, the fluid is assumed as extending only to a finite radius b where the pressure Po is zero and b is taken to be 30 inches. From the reference, this assumption should result in an error of less than 1% compared to the frequency for an unbounded fluid (b = ∞ ). The natural boundary conditions at the coordinate axes imply that δP / δx = 0 at x = 0 and δP / δy = 0 at y = 0. This problem is solved using two separate analyses. The first, using 3-D acoustic fluid elements (FLUID30) with quadrilateral shell elements (SHELL63), and the second, using 2-D acoustic fluid elements (FLUID29) with 2-D elastic beam elements (BEAM3). In the first case, due to fluid-structure coupling involving unsymmetric matrices, the natural frequency is determined by performing a full harmonic (ANTYPE = 3) analysi...
