A rational spectral problem in fluid-solid vibration

Heinrich Voss


In this paper we apply a minmax characterization for nonoverdamped nonlinear eigenvalue problems to a rational eigenproblem governing mechanical vibrations of a tube bundle immersed in an inviscid compressible fluid. This eigenproblem is nonstandard in two respects: it depends rationally on the eigenparameter, and it involves non-local boundary conditions. Comparison results are proved comparing the eigenvalues of the rational problem to those of certain linear problems suggesting a way how to construct ansatz vectors for an efficient projection method.
