Aerodynamic Damping of Randomly Excited Plates in Stationary and Moving Air

Tarnopolsky, Alex Z; Lai, J C S; Fletcher, Neville H.


An experimental study of the aerodynamic damping of oscillating plates has been undertaken. Plates of various shapes were placed into an air flow normal to the plate and excited to oscillate parallel to the flow direction by electromagnetic forces of equal amplitudes and random frequencies. The aerodynamic damping of oscillating plates, evaluated in terms of a quality Q-factor from a frequency response resonance curve, was found to vary linearly with the absolute pressure in stationary...[Show more]
