Abstract : Comprehensive studies on the effect of structural motion on the response and control of liquid flow systems were completed. Detailed analytical and experimental studies established the importance of motion of transmission lines on fluid system responses. The study developed both plane wave and impedance analyses to predict the effects of motion, and the experimental results establish the validity of the analyses. It is concluded that the effects of line motion may be major, and in some cases, the prime consideration in the design and control of fluid systems, and that the methods developed should be employed to predict these effects.
