The different techniques of assessing the flow-induced vibration problems of common power plant components are reviewed. The components are divided into categories of single cylinders, flat plates, pipes containing flowing fluid, cylindrical shells, and tube banks. The mechanisms considered include turbulent buffeting, instability, vortex shedding, acoustics, and leakage flow-induced vibration. Emphasis is placed on applications to industrial problems.
