Modal Analysis of Cylindrical Structures



An overview, providing a physical understanding of the vibration modes for a single layer thick cylindrical structure, the main variables, and their general effect upon the response of the system, is given in this chapter. Furthermore, non-dimensional natural frequencies for a number of ratios of thickness to mean radius, different non-dimensional axial wavelengths, and circumferential wave numbers are tabulated and their respective modes are identified.
