A Family of Early-Time Approximations for Fluid-Structure Interaction Journal Article uri icon



  • A hierarchical family of early-time, high-frequency asymptotic, surface interaction approximations is derived for a structure submerged in an infinite acoustic fluid. Kirchhoff’s retarded-potential integro-differential formulation is used as exact source formula. The well-known plane-wave and curved-wave approximations result as the first two members of the hierarchy. Acoustic impedance characteristics of the first four members are exhibited for several sample geometries.
