Flow-induced vibration in heat exchanger tube banks is of great concern, particularly in high performance heat exchangers used in nuclear raactor systems. In this paper, the dynamic characteristics of tube banks in stationary liquid are studied. A method of analysis is presented for free and forced vibrations of tube banks including tube/fluid interaction. Numerical results are given for tube banks subjected to various types of excitations.
