Dynamics of Composite Materials and Structures
A book which develops an analysis of the dynamic
behaviour of laminates, sandwiches and composite structures.
Dynamics of Composite Materials and Structures is a text book which develops the analysis of the dynamic behaviour of laminates, sandwiches and composite structures. It has been established for undergraduate
and graduate levels.
First, the fundamental
elements on the constituents and architecture of composite materials are considered. Next the dynamics of one degree of freedom systems is developed.
Free vibrations of beams and
plates constituted of laminates or sandwiches are analyzed in the case of undamped materials. Next damping of composite materials is considered. and the bending vibrations are studied using viscous
friction model and complex stiffness. Inserting viscoelastic layers is also analyzed.
investigations of composite vibrations and damping are reported. The investigations present the experimental analysis and the discussion of the experimental results.
The dynamic analysis of
composite structures needs to use finite element method. The book gives the basic concepts.
A synthesis of the different
concepts is reported in the last chapter.
