A perturbation analysis of fluid-structure interactions in a model test system of controlled flexibility excited by a complex hydrodynamic transient is presented. The analysis demonstrates the important features of the perturbation method and its implementation. Comparison of predictions with experiment provides a test of the analytical procedure and its underlying assumptions. The results illustrate the important effect of transient liquid mass redistribution on the flexible system response.
