Abstract

Vibration and buckling analysis of cross-ply composite beams using refined shear deformation theory is presented. The theory accounts for the parabolical variation of shear strains through the depth of beam. Three governing equations of motion are derived from the Hamilton’s principle. The resulting coupling is referred to as triply coupled vibration and buckling. A two-noded C1 beam element with five degree-of-freedom per node is developed to solve the problem. Numerical results are obtained for composite beams to investigate modulus ratio on the natural frequencies, critical buckling loads and load-frequency interaction curves.
