Numerical simulation of vibration control of a submerged stiffened cylindrical structure with active vibration isolators is presented. Vibration transmission from vibrating machinery to the cylindrical structure through the active vibration isolators is analyzed by a numerical model synthesized from frequency response functions (FRFs) and impedances. The coupled finite element/boundary element (FE/BE) method is employed to study the vibro-acoustic behavior of the fluid-loaded cylindrical structure. Sound pressure in the far-field is calculated in terms of the pressure and normal acceleration of the outer surface of the cylindrical shell. An adaptive multichannel control based on the filtered-x least mean squares (FxLMS) algorithm is used in the active vibration isolation. Simulation results have demonstrated that suppression of vibration of the four elastic foundations attached to the cylindrical shell will reduce the spatial-average mean-square velocity and the instantaneous radiated power of the cylindrical shell. As a result, suppression of vibration of the foundations leads to attenuation of sound radiation in the far-field induced by the radial displacement dominant mode of the shell. Moreover, vibration suppression is greatly influenced by the strong couplings among control channels. According to these results, it can be concluded that the proposed method is effective in the analysis of underwater sound radiation control of cylindrical structures.
