About this book

This book is about the application of linear filtering theory in vibrations of structure in fluid. The stress is laid on mathmatical models which, in the theory of system, characterize the state of a dynamic system. The models are in the form of linear Ito stochastic differential equations. Discretization of the models which leads to straightforward computer applications is discussed. An approach to nonlinear problems based on the expansion of random functions in a series is presented. Examples of application of Kalman filters are given, which refer to vibrations of cylinders in waves.

Contents

Mathematical models for random functions without dominant frequencies; mathematical models for random functions with multiple dominant frequencies; expansion in a series of random functions with multiple dominant frequencies; properties of a dynamic system; free vibrations of a structure in a fluid; vibrations of structures due to water waves; nonlinear problems of vibrations.

Media reviews
I found the book of interest, and learned something from it. The authors convincingly establish the appropriateness of their statistical techniques to the problem in hand ... I feel that it covers worthwhile material. C J Chapman J Fluid Mechanics, 1994 "... this book should be purchased by the libraries of universities with engineering programs; the book will be of special importance for departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering."
