Rotating machinery generates pressure pulsations, and the pulsations may cause severe vibrations of drums in high frequency region, resulting in material fatigue failure under certain conditions. Experiments and numerical simulations were performed to investigate the mechanism of the high frequency vibrations of the drums downstream of compressors. The results show that fatigue failure occurs when acoustic diametral modes of a drum are excited by pressure loading. In order to establish practical countermeasures against the vibrations, three-dimensional sound-structural coupled analysis as well as one-dimensional pulsation analysis were conducted. As a result, practical measures such as changing diameter, or thickness of the drums, applying restriction orifice are confirmed effective by using the approach proposed in this study. The validity of the simulation methods incorporating the sensitivity to the fluid conditions is shown.
