چکیده

A Newtonian (vectorial) approach is used to develop the governing differential equations of motion for a three layer sandwich beam in which the uniform distribution of mass and stiffness is dealt with exactly. The model allows for each layer of material to be of unequal thickness and the effects of coupled bending and longitudinal motion are accounted for. This results in an eighth order ordinary differential equation whose closed form solution is developed into an exact dynamic member stiffness matrix (exact finite element) for the beam. Such beams can then be assembled to model a variety of structures in the usual manner. However, such a formulation necessitates the solution of a transcendental eigenvalue problem. This is accomplished using the Wittrick-Williams algorithm, whose implementation is discussed in detail. The algorithm enables any desired natural frequency to be converged upon to any required accuracy with the certain knowledge that none have been missed. The accuracy of the method is then confirmed by comparison with five sets of published results together with a further example that indicates its range of application.  A number of further issues are considered that arise from the difference between sandwich beams and uniform single material beams, including the accuracy of the characteristic equation, co-ordinate transformations, modal coupling and the application of boundary conditions.

Using the Riesz basis approach, we study a sandwich beam that is composed of an outer stiff layer and a compliant middle layer. The dynamic behavior and analyticity of the system are obtained based on a detailed spectral analysis and Riesz basis generation. As a consequence, the analyticity of the solution and the exponential stability of the system are concluded.

This study presents the effect of porosity on mechanical behaviors of a power distribution functionally graded beam. The Euler-Bernoulli beam is assumed to describe the kinematic relations and constitutive equations. Because of technical problems, particle size shapes and micro-voids are created during the fabrication which should be taken into consideration. Two porosity models are proposed. T...

Composite materials utilizing the sandwich structure are a basic family of materials and possess a highly increasing use in modern industrial applications. Since the traditional approach to structural design and material selection tends to be replaced by the Fracture mechanics approach, it is worth understanding the way that the Fracture mechanics approach is applied. The traditional approach t...

We consider a three layer Rao-Nakra sandwich beam with damping proportional to shear included in the core layer. We prove that eigenvectors of the beam form a Riesz basis for the natural energy space. In the damped case, we are able to give precise conditions under which solutions decay at a uniform exponential rate. We also consider the problem of boundary control using bending moment and late...

The forced frequency analysis is very important in the design of automotive structures. In particular, the Frequency Response Functions (FRF) computation is an important step in determining Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) of any automotive vehicle. In general, the CAE engineer must address the severity and compliance of the design limits set in the NVH environment. Usually, a CAE engineer ...
