Dynamic Stability of a Sandwich Beam Subjected to Parametric Excitation

Mohanta, Laxmi (2006) Dynamic Stability of a Sandwich Beam Subjected to Parametric Excitation. MTech by Research thesis.



Vibration control of machines and structures incorporating viscoelastic materials in suitable arrangement is an important aspect of investigation. The use of viscoelastic layers constrained between elastic layers is known to be effective for damping of flexural vibrations of structures over a wide range of frequencies. The energy dissipated in these arrangements is due to shear deformation in the viscoelastic layers, which occurs due to flexural vibration of the structures. Multilayered cantilever sandwich beam like structures can be used in aircrafts and other applications such as robot arms for effective vibration control. These members may experience parametric instability when subjected to time dependant forces. The theory of dynamic stability of elastic systems deals with the study of vibrations induced by pulsating loads that are parametric with respect to certain forms of deformation The purpose of the present work is to investigate the dynamic stability of a three layered sym...
