Estimation of Structural Response to Aeroacoustic Loads 660721
The aeroacoustic pressure loading due to jet and rocket engines and boundary layer turbulence is discussed. The response of structures to these loadings is considered, and many methods of analysis are examined. An evaluation of the labor involved and the resulting accuracy of each method is made. The study shows that the most complete and detailed analysis does not often give the most accurate result, and that more approximate methods can give as comparably accurate estimates of response with far less investment of time and labor.
