Description/Abstract

Two new C0 assumed strain finite element formulations of Reddy's higher-order theory are used to determine the natural frequencies and loss factors of layered anisotropic composite and sandwich plates. Material properties typical of fibre polyester resins for the skin and HEREX C70 PVC foam damping materials for cores are used to show the parametric effects of plate aspect ratio, length-thickness ratio on natural frequencies and loss factors.

A consistent mass matrix is adopted in the present formulation. Both frequency-independent and frequency-dependent damping of viscoelastic materials are considered. The developed elements are free from spurious zero energy modes due to the assumed strain approach.
