Static and Dynamic Responses of a Composite Engine Mounting Structure
In this paper fiber reinforced laminated composite for engine mount model are investigated by finite element method. Static analysis is carried out to find out the maximum displacement point or node on the bottom plate, on which the displacement is optimized. Different ply orientation and combinations of 0°/45°, 0°/90° and 0°/45°/90° are then studied under sinusoidal and dynamic load conditions to examine the effect of ply orientation on the structure’s displacement transportation, and to get the optimized ply orientation combination, which inherit least displacement from the excitation on the top plate. The result shows that the laminate with ply orientation of 0°/90° is the best as the Z-displacement on the bottom is considered.
