Analytical Solutions for Free Vibration of Laminated Composite and Sandwich Plates Based on a Higher-order Re®ned Theory

  title={Analytical Solutions for Free Vibration of Laminated Composite and Sandwich Plates Based on a Higher-order Re®ned Theory},
  author={Tarun Kant and Kanchana Swaminathan}
Analytical formulations and solutions to the natural frequency analysis of simply supported composite and sandwich plates hitherto not reported in the literature based on a higher-order re®ned theory developed by the ®rst author and already reported in the literature are presented. The theoretical model presented herein incorporates laminate deformations which account for the e€ects of transverse shear deformation, transverse normal strain/stress and a nonlinear variation of in-plane… CONTINUE READING
