Abstract

The coupled wavenumbers in the axisymmetric mode of a fluid-filled cylindrical shell are studied. The coupled dispersion equation of the system is rewritten in the form of the uncoupled dispersion equation of the structure and the acoustic domain, with an added fluid-loading term ( due to the coupling. Using the smallness of poisson’s ratio, a double-asymptotic solution to this equation is found for large and small values of The coupled wavenumbers in the axisymmetric mode of a fluid-filled cylindrical shell are studied. The coupled dispersion equation of the system is rewritten in the form of the uncoupled dispersion equation of the structure and the acoustic domain, with an added fluid-loading term ( Analytical expressions are derived for the coupled wavenumbers. Different asymptotic expansions are used for different frequency ranges with continuous transitions occurring between them. The wavenumber solutions are continuously tracked as varies from small to large values. A general trend observed is that a given wavenumber branch transits from a rigid-walled solution to a pressure-release solution with increasing Analytical expressions are derived for the coupled wavenumbers. Different asymptotic expansions are used for different frequency ranges with continuous transitions occurring between them. The wavenumber solutions are continuously tracked as Also, it is found that at any frequency where two wavenumbers intersect in the uncoupled analysis, there is no more an intersection in the coupled case, but a gap is created at that frequency. Only the axisymmetric mode is considered, however the findings can be extended to the higher order modes.
