NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION OF NATURAL FREQUENCIES FOR CLAMPED LONGITUDINAL COMPOSITE PLATES

Firas T. Al-Maliky

Abstract


In this paper, two finite element models were performed. The fiber and matrix represented as two different materials in the first plate, while the second showed as a composite plate. The boundary conditions included clamped the plates on four ends and the dimensions of the composite plates were changed in this study. The finite element was performed and ANSYS 16.1 was employed in modeling. By comparing the results between the frequency ratio and mode numbers for different plate thickness, the results showed that natural frequencies calculated by these two model thickness of the (length/width) ratio will be more uniform and the error will be small. The numerical equations that performed from this study used to investigate the natural frequencies for longitudinal clamped composite plate.
