Flow-Induced Vibration of a Spherical Body

Fluids and structures are everywhere, so the interaction between them is common. Although fluid-structure interaction can be gentle and harmless, in other situations it can result in long-term structural damage or even catastrophic failure. Therefore, it is of considerable practical significance to many engineering fields. The Flow-Induced Vibration of a structure is one of the most important types of fluid-structure interaction. This thesis examines the vibration of a spherical body induced by the flow of a surrounding fluid.
