Effect of Delamination on Natural Frequencies of E-glass and S-glass Epoxy Composite Plates
Keywords:Natural frequency, S-glass epoxy, E-glass epoxy, delamination, finite element method
The delamination is one of the major modes of failure occurring in the laminated composite due to insufficient bonding between the layers. In this paper, the natural frequencies of delaminated S-glass and E-glass epoxy cantilever composite plates are presented by employing the finite element method (FEM) approach. The rotary inertia and transverse shear deformation are considered in the present study. The effect of parameters such as the location of delamination along the length, across the thickness, the percentage of delamination, and ply-orientation angle on first three natural frequencies of the cantilever plates are presented for S-glass and E-glass epoxy composites. The standard eigenvalue problem is solved to obtain the natural frequencies and corresponding mode shapes. First three mode shape of S-Glass and E-Glass epoxy laminated composites are portrayed corresponding to different ply angle of lamina.
