Effects of Fluid-Structure Interaction on Dynamic Responses of Composite Structures: Experimental and Numerical Studies
Kwon, Young W.
MetadataShow full item record
The technical objectives of the study were to understand and predict the effects of fluid-structure interaction on the dynamic responses and failures of polymer composite structures used for naval applications. More specifically, they were to compare dynamical responses, and failure mechanisms and modes of composite structures in water and air to enhance the understanding of the effects of fluid-structure interaction on marine composite structural behaviors; and to identify the major factors of fluid-structure interaction that affect composite structures
