Vibration Damping Behavior of Fiber Reinforced Composites: A Review
This paper gives a wide view over recent research in dynamic characteristics and vibration damping properties of fiber-reinforced, polymer-matrix composites, with emphasis on parameters governing damping, such as fiber volume fraction, fiber orientation, exciting frequency, aspect ratio and fiber-matrix interface, as well as stacking sequence for laminated composites. Both experimental and analytical models are discussed and parameters used to measure the amount of vibration damping are covered. Natural-fiber based composites are handled in detail in the last section of this paper.
