Analytical Solution for Free Vibration of Sandwich Structures with a Functionally Graded Syntactic Foam Core

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study, after a brief introduction to recent investigations on syntactic foam, the free vibration of sandwich structures with syntactic foam as a functionally graded flexible core based on higher order sandwich panel theory is investigated. The formulation uses the classical beam theory for the face sheets and an elasticity theory for the functionally graded core. In the following a numerical study of free vibration of a simply-supported sandwich beam is carried out and corresponding eigenmodes are obtained.
