Development of a substructuring approach to model the vibroacoustic behavior of submerged stiffened cylindrical shells coupled to non-axisymmetric internal frames

Abstract : Many works can be found in the literature concerning the vibroacoustic modelling of submerged stiffened cylindrical shells, because of high interest in the industrial domain, in particular for aeronautical or naval applications. However, only a few of them take into account non-axisymmetric internal frames, as for instance engine foundations or floor partitions, that can play a role on the vibroacoustic behavior of the system. That is why a substructuring approach called the Condensed Transfer Function (CTF) approach is proposed in the first part of this thesis. The aim is to take advantage of both analytical models and element-based models, in order to be able to deal with the geometrical complexity, and to calculate at higher frequencies than with element-based methods only. The substructuring method is developed in the general case of thin mechanical structures coupled along curves. A set of orthonormal functions called condensation functions, which depend on the curvilinear abscissa along the coupling line, is considered. This set is then used as a basis for approximating and decomposing the displacements and the applied forces at the line junctions. Thanks to the definition and calculation of condensed transfer functions for each uncoupled subsystem and by using the superposition principle for passive linear systems, the behavior of the coupled subsystems can be obtained. The method is first developed and validated for plates and convergence criteria are defined in relation with the size of the basis of condensation functions. The CTF method is then applied to the case of a submerged stiffened cylindrical shell with non-axisymmetric internal frames. The system is partitioned in 3 types of subsystems: the submerged shell, the axisymmetric frames (stiffeners, bulkheads) and the non-axisymmetric frames. The submerged shell is described by a semi-analytical method based on the Flügge equations in the spectral domain. The axisymmetric frames are described by axisymmetric Finite Element models and the non-axisymmetric frames by Finite Element models. The CTF method is applied to different test cases in order to highlight the influence of non-axisymmetric internal frames on the vibroacoustic behavior of a submerged stiffened cylindrical shell, for different excitations particularly relevant in the naval domain: a point force, an acoustic plane wave, and a random pressure field (such as a diffuse sound field or a turbulent boundary layer for instance).
