Columns under a Rocket-Based Follower Force and with a Lumped Mass
The experiment described in Chap. 10 demonstrated that the cantilevered column under a rocket thrust lose its stability by flutter. This chapter will take a similar but more quantitative experimental approach to the column subjected to a rocket thrust and equipped with a lumped mass. The stability analysis is carried out by applying the finite element method to discuss the effect of a rigid body on the flutter bound.
