Acoustics of Fluid-Structure Interactions addresses an increasingly important branch of fluid mechanics--the absorption of noise and vibration by fluid flow. This subject, which offers numerous challenges to conventional areas of acoustics, is of growing concern in places where the environment is adversely affected by sound. Howe presents useful background material on fluid mechanics and the elementary concepts of classical acoustics and structural... more...

This book is designed for a first graduate course in fluid dynamics. It focuses on knowledge and methods that find applications in most branches of fluid mechanics, and aims to supply a theoretical understanding that will permit sensible simplifications to be made in the formulation of problems and enable the reader to develop analytical models of practical significance. The study of simplified model problems can be used to guide experimental and... more...

This is an introduction to the branch of fluid mechanics concerned with the production of sound by hydrodynamic flows. It is designed for a one semester introductory course at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level. Great care is taken to explain underlying fluid mechanical and acoustic concepts, and to describe fully the steps in a complicated derivation. The discussion deals specifically with low Mach number flows, which enables the sound... more...
