Eigen-vibrations of Plates made of Functionally Graded Material


Within the framework of the direct approach to the plate theory we consider natural oscillations of plates made of functionally graded materials taking into account both the rotatory inertia and the transverse shear stiffness. It is shown that in some cases the results based on the direct approach differ significantly from the classical estimates. The reason for this is the non-classical computation of the transverse shear stiffness.
