Abstract Fluid rigid body interaction is commonly occurring phenomenon and this phenomenon is of high importance in many engineering applications. The main objective of the present paper is to analyse vibrations due to fluid –rigid body interactions by inclining the frontal area of flat plate to flow. As understood from the existing research, the main challenge is the understanding of non-stationary fluid body interactions. Interaction analysis, optimization and synthesis tasks include space – time programming methods and approximate analytical methods. This article discusses an approximate analytical method in which the object’s interaction with fluid flow is divided into two parts in the fluid body interaction space. The first part is the frontal pressure side that arise as a result of change of momentum in the system that can be conveniently represented in a differential form. The second part includes the idea of describing the interaction behind the plate as a certain thin (vacuum) side was accepted. This thin vacuum side also depends on the frontal area flow interaction. The use and precision of the approximate analytical method was verified by experiments in the wind tunnel. The method was used for good analysing of varying frontal area (until flattening) of flat plate in fluid flow. The main parameters for motion excitation are the changes in plate-flow interaction area, velocity and angle of inclination of the flat square plate to the fluid flow. Experiments were performed at 10 m·s-1 keeping in view the wind speeds that were observed in the past in Riga, Latvia.
