Experimental study of flow-induced pipe vibrations with guided end conditions

Sutar, S. M., Radhakrishna, M., Indian Institute of Chemical Technology; Babu, P. R., University College of Engineering, Osmania University

A study has been performed on the vibrations and stability of fluid-conveying pipes with guided ends. Guided ends are the most common type of pipe ends, as they enable the pipe to have free movement.
