Limit Cycle Flutter Analysis of Plate-Type Beam with Dissymmetrical Subsection Linear Stiffness
The limit cycle flutter of a plate-type structure with dissymmetrical subsection linear stiffness in incompressible viscous flow was studied. Galerkin Method was used to get the differential equations of system. The equivalent linearization concept was performed to predict the ranges of limit cycle flutter velocities. The flutter borderline map was used to analyze the the stability of limit cycle flutter. By numerical integrating, the velocities of convergence, flutter and instability were obtained. The theoretical results agree well with the results of numerical integration.
