Effects of Fluid Inertia and Turbulence on the Force Coefficients for Squeeze Film Dampers Academic Article uri icon


  • The effects of fluid inertia and turbulence on the force coefficients of squeeze film dampers are investigated analytically. Both the convective and the temporal terms are included in the analysis of inertia effects. The analysis of turbulence is based on friction coefficients currently found in the literature for Poiseuille flow. (from authors' abstract)
