Abstract In this paper, a sensitivity study of the free vibration of composite sandwich cylindrical shells with grid cores is performed by using Taguchi method. Six parameters such as stiffeners’ number, layers’ number of inner and outer skins, stiffener thickness, outer and inner skin thicknesses, boundary condition and outer and inner skin ply stacking sequences are considered. To do so, five levels are selected for each parameter. The $$ {L_{25}}\; $$L25 orthogonal array is selected while… CONTINUE READING
