Abstract:Efficient and accurate analytical or semi-analytical solutions have been developed for the dynamics of one and two dimensional linear structures employing elemental dynamic flexibility formulation. This dissertation is divided into three parts. In the first, the elemental flexibility formulation is developed for Euler-Bernoulli beams having discontinuous section properties, which can be viewed as the synthesis of uniform beams, and the exactness of the solution is established. In the second, the elemental flexibility formulation is extended to thin rectangular plates having Levy boundary conditions, and conditions under which the exact solution can be achieved are presented. In the third, the structural-acoustic problem of Helmholtz fluid enclosed by a partially flexible cavity is posed and solved. Here, a concise analytical representation of the structural dynamics is used in conjunction with a boundary element approach for the fluid medium to give an efficient and accurate semi-analytical solution.
All three sections are organized along similar lines. Following an introduction and review of the pertinent literature, the governing equations are derived and solved, a series of example problems is presented, the results from the examples are compared with similar results from the literature, and efficacy of the method when compared with other methods is discussed. This is followed by a general conclusions section and a series of appendices.
