Lateral vibration transmission suppression of a shaft-hull system with active stern support

This paper presents an active control method for reducing the lateral vibration transmission in a shaft-hull coupled system of submerged vehicles under the excitation of propeller forces. In this method, a 6-DOF (degree of freedom) active stern support and the local velocity feedback control strategy are employed to suppress vibration transmission from the shaft to the hull. The dynamic model of the shaft-hull system embedded with the active stern support is established with the FRF (frequency response function)-based synthesis method and the FEM/BEM (finite element method/boundary element method). The six-channel local velocity feedback control strategy is employed to suppress vibrations of the strut-hull interface. Numerical results indicate that a noticeable attenuation of vibration and sound radiation can be achieved by the active stern support. In addition, the combination control at the stern support and the thrust bearing is able to obtain better attenuation at some critical frequencies. Suppression of the mean square velocity and radiated sound power of the hull surface are observed.
