Numerical Modeling of an Enclosed Cylinder

Finite element models are regularly used in many disciplines to predict dynamic behavior of a structure under certain loads and subject to various boundary conditions, in particular when analytical models cannot be used due to geometric complexity. One such example is a structure with an entrained fluid cavity. To assist an experimental study of the acoustoelastic effect, numerical studies of an enclosed cylinder were performed to design the test hardware. With a system that demonstrates acoustoelastic coupling, it was then desired to make changes to decouple the structure from the fluid by making changes to either the fluid or the structure. In this paper, simulation is used to apply various changes and observe the effects on the structural response to choose an effective decoupling approach for the experimental study.
