Free Vibration Analysis of Laminated Composite Beams

(osama mohammed elmardi suleiman khayal) #1

First order shear deformation (FSDT) theory for laminated composite beams is used to study free vibration of
laminated composite beams, and finite element method (FEM) is employed to obtain numerical solution of the
governing differential equations. Free vibration analysis of laminated beams with rectangular cross – section for
various combinations of end conditions is studied. To verify the accuracy of the present method, the frequency
parameters are evaluated and compared with previous work available in the literature. The good agreement with
other available data demonstrates the capability and reliability of the finite element method and the adopted beam
model used.published-pdf-3015-6-312157.pdf (349.5% u)
