Abstract


In this study, the Dynamic Response of a Fluid Conveying Pipe on a Pasternak Foundation is investigated using a Galerkin finite element method. Several factors affecting the vibration of the conveying pipe such as foundation stiffness, length of pipe, fluid density have been studied extensively. From results obtained, it shows that foundation and length of the pipe affects the mechanical behaviour of fluid conveying pipe.
