For controlling the noise radiated from vibrating structures excited by turbulent boundary layer (TBL) it is relevant to develop numerical tools for understanding how the structure reacts to TBL excitation. Usually, the wall pressure fluctuations of the TBL are described through statistical quantities (i.e. space-frequency or wavenumber-frequency spectra) which depend on the TBL parameters. On the other hand, the vibro-acoustic models (i.e. Finite Elements, Boundary Elements, Transfer Matrix… 

Review of Efficient Methods for the Computation of Transmission Loss of Plates with Inhomogeneous Material Properties and Curvature Under Turbulent Boundary Layer Excitation

The excitation of structures by turbulent boundary layer requires the consideration of the cross-spectral density for all degrees of freedom excited by the pressure fluctuations. This leads to large

Comparisons of sample calculations with results of rigorous models validate the approximation and are relevant to problems of sound radiation by underwater stiffened steel plates driven by turbulent boundary layer (TBL) pressures.

Application of the spectral finite element method to turbulent boundary layer induced vibration of plates

The spectral finite element method and equally the dynamic stiffness method use exponential functions as basis functions. Thus it is possible to find exact solutions to the homogeneous equations of
