The aim of this study is to present the dynamic behavior of a symmetric laminated composite beam with localized elastic supports. The dynamic response of a clamped—clamped composite beam to a moving point load with constant velocity is calculated by using the finite element method. A three-dimensional finite element model based on the classical lamination theory is used in order to define the structural stiffness. The Newmark integration method that is widely used in structural dynamics is… CONTINUE READING
