On Axially Symmetric Vibrations of Fluid Filled Poroelastic Spherical Shells
ABSTRACT
Employing Biot’s theory of wave propagation in liquid saturated porous media, waves propagating in a hollow poroelastic closed spherical shell filled with fluid are studied. The frequency equation of axially symmetric vibrations for a pervious and an impervious surface is obtained. Free vibrations of a closed spherical shell are studied as a particular case when the fluid is vanished. Frequency as a function of ratio of thickness to inner radius is computed in absence of dissipation for two types of poroelastic materials each for a pervious and an impervious surface. Results of previous works are obtained as a particular case of the present study.
