Vibration and Acoustic Analysis of Laminated Composite Plate

Bankar, Suraj Sitaram (2015) Vibration and Acoustic Analysis of Laminated Composite Plate. MTech thesis.



Conventional materials such as steel, aluminium etc. are used in industries because of their high strength and stiffness. But composite materials have taken their places because they are giving excellent strength and stiffness with low weight. Currently, many industries such as automobile, aerospace, trains, buildings are using sandwich materials to reduce noise level. These sandwich materials consist of sheets of conventional materials which are bonded by polymers, plastics to reduce vibration and noise. In this study, vibration and acoustic analysis of laminated composite plate are carried out experimentally. Carbon fibre reinforced polymer and glass fibre reinforced polymer plates are used to study low frequency vibration and their effect of surrounding air medium. Combined modes shapes are formed because of resonance of natural frequencies of the structure and acoustic cavity. These combined mode shapes generally occur in low frequency region and possesses both high-order displacement and high-order pressure amplitude. The effect of number of plies and ply angle are investigated on the natural frequency and the pressure amplitude. The finite element simulation model is developed to validate the results obtained from experiment
