The slender fuel rods of a gas-cooled nuclear reactor are contained in a cylindrical duct and are subjected to parallel gas flow together with an acoustic field produced by the gas blowers. The fundamental aspects of the acoustically induced rod vibrations have been studied for bundles of rods and single rods. In both cases the rod vibrations are critically dependent upon a close structural-acoustic wavelength match.
