Abstract

This paper deals with both linear and nonlinear analyses of sheet flutter in a narrow passage caused by fluid-structure interaction. The sheet is considered as a combination of massless beam elements, springs and discrete mass particles, in which the mass of each particle and spring coefficients are calculated based on the beam model. In the linear analysis, equations of motion of the system are obtained by formulating fluid dynamic forces and moments acting on each sheet element, yielding an eigenvalue problem. To show the validity of the proposed method, calculated results were compared with previously reported experimental ones. In the nonlinear analysis, nonlinear fluid dynamic forces are introduced to simulate the behavior of the sheet, showing the appearance of limit-cycle vibration in high flow speed.
