We investigate the dynamic stability of a pipe that conveys fluid, clamped or pinned at one end and with an intermediate support, thus exhibiting an overhang. The model of the pipe incorporates both Euler–Bernoulli and Bresse–Timoshenko schemes as well as transverse inertia. Material and external damping mechanisms are taken into account, while the conveyed fluid is supposed to be in fully turbulent flow. The pipe can rest on a linear elastic Winkler soil.

Abstract

We investigate the dynamic stability of a pipe that conveys fluid, clamped or pinned at one end and with an intermediate support, thus exhibiting an overhang. The model of the pipe incorporates both Euler–Bernoulli and Bresse–Timoshenko schemes as well as transverse inertia. Material and external damping mechanisms are taken into account, while the conveyed fluid is supposed to be in fully turbulent flow. The pipe can rest on a linear elastic Winkler soil. The influence of all the physical quantities and of the overhang length on the critical velocity of the fluid front is investigated. Some numerical results are presented and discussed. © 2014, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
