ON THE HYDRODYNAMIC INERTIA AND DAMPING AT A FLUID-LOADED INFINITE PLATE SUBJECTED TO LOCAL VIBRATORY EXCITATION

In studying vibration and structure-borne sound problems, ship hulls and underwater sections of offshore structures are often approximated by wetted plane plates. The hydrodynamic inertia that results from integrating local acceleration pressure is important to these studies, as is the damping that results from the presence of water and sheds vibratory energy into the water. The author presents a simple method for calculating these inertia and damping factors, based on the solution for the infinite "dry plate" at local vibratory loading.
