Cantilevered Pipes with a Mechanical Element
Cantilevered pipes conveying fluid are the easiest realizable (in laboratory) mechanical models with a follower thrust. As to cantilevered pipes conveying fluid in practice, they are normally braced by a supporting component. The mechanical functions of such a supporting component are attributable to three mechanical elements: an elastic spring, a lumped mass, and a damper. This chapter discusses, through theory and experiment, the effect of such a mechanical element on the stability of a cantilevered pipe conveying fluid.
