Finite Element Analysis of Vibration Damping for Woven Fabric Composites


Article Preview

The estimation method of the damping properties for woven composites has proposed. The proposed method has been applied to the plain woven composites. From these results, it is recognized that the computational damping properties have agreed with the experimental ones. Next, the effect of angle of fiber bundle on material damping of plain woven composites has investigated. The results show that the damping ratio is highest at angle of 45 degree.
