Vibration Analysis of Box Structures

Pp. 101-110 (10)

Meilan Liu and Cho W. S. To

Abstract

Vibration characteristics of box structures, generally known as rectangular prismatic shell structures, are studied in this chapter. To limit the scope in this book, only single-cell box structure and double-cell box structures are presented. In these two types of shell structures the first ten frequency parameters or natural frequencies along with their corresponding mode shapes are included.

Keywords:

Vibration analysis, box-structures, single-cell, double-cell.
