Abstract

Free vibration analysis of arbitrarily laminated plates of quad, penta and hexagonal shapes, which have combinations of clamped, simply supported and free edge conditions is performed. The finite element formulation is based on first and higher order shear deformation theories to study the free vibration response of thick laminated composite plates. A finite element code is developed incorporating shear deformation theories using an 8-noded serendipity element. The effect of plate shape, arbitrary lamination and different edge conditions on natural frequencies and mode shapes are investigated. A systematic study is carried out to determine the influence of material orthotropy and aspect ratio on free vibration response. For various cases, the comparisons of results from present study showed good agreement with those published in the literature.
