Free flexural (or bending) vibration analysis of certain of stiffened composite plates or panels in flight vehicle structures

Javanshir Habestan, Jaber
In this study, the “Free Flexural (or Bending) Vibrations of Stiffened Plates or Panels” are investigated in detail. Two different Groups of “Stiffened Plates” will be considered. In the first group, the “Type 4” and the “Type 6” of “Group I” of the “Integrally-Stiffened and/or Stepped-Thickness Plate or Panel Systems” are theoretically analyzed and numerically solved by making use of the “Mindlin Plate Theory”. Here, the natural frequencies and the corresponding mode shapes, up to the sixth mode, are obtained for each “Dynamic System”. Some important parametric studies are also presented for each case. In the second group, the “Class 2” and the “Class 3” of the “Bonded and Stiffened Plate or Panel Systems” are also analyzed and solved in terms of the natural frequencies with their corresponding mode shapes. In this case, the “Plate Assembly” is constructed by bonding “Stiffening Plate Strips” to a “Base Plate or Panel” by dissimilar relatively thin adhesive layers. This is done with the purpose of reinforcing the “Base Plate or Panel” by these “Stiffening Strips” in the appropriate locations, so that the “Base Plate or Panel” will exhibit satisfactory dynamic response. The forementioned “Bonded and Stiffened Systems” may also be used to repair a damaged (or rather cracked) “Base Plate or Panel”. Here in the analysis, the “Base Plate or Panel”, the “Stiffening Plate Strips” as well as the in- between “adhesive layers” are assumed to be linearly elastic continua. They are assumed to be dissimilar “Orthotropic Mindlin Plates”. Therefore, the effects of shear deformations and rotary moments of inertia are considered in the theoretical formulation. In each case of the “Group I” and “Group II” problems, the “Governing System of Dynamic Equations” for every problem is reduced to the “First Order Ordinary Differential Equations”. In other words the “Free Vibrations Problem”, in both cases, is an “Initial and Boundary Value Problem” is reduced to a “Two- Point or Multi-Point Boundary Value Problem” by using the present “Solution Technique”. For this purpose, these “Governing Equations” are expressed in “compact forms” or “state vector” forms. These equations are numerically integrated by the so-called “Modified Transfer Matrix Method (MTMM) (with Interpolation Polynomials)”. In the numerical results, the mode shapes together with their corresponding non-dimensional natural frequencies are presented up to the sixth mode and for various sets of “Boundary Conditions” for each structural “System”. The effects of several important parameters on the natural frequencies of the aforementioned “Systems” are also investigated and are graphically presented for each “Stiffened and Stiffened and Bonded Plate or Panel System”. Additionally, in the case of the “Bonded and Stiffened System”, the significant effects of the “adhesive material properties” (i.e. the “Hard” adhesive and the “Soft” adhesive cases) on the dynamic response of the “plate assembly” are also presented.


Free vibrations of bonded single lap joints in composite, shallow cylindrical shell panels
Yuceoglu, U; Ozerciyes, V (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), 2005-12-01)
The problem of free vibrations of bonded single lap joints in composite, shallow circular cylindrical shells or shell panels is investigated. The shallow circular cylindrical shell adherends are considered to be made of dissimilar, orthotropic materials adhesively bonded by an in-between, very thin, yet flexible adhesive layer. In the theoretical formulation, a first-order shear deformation shell theory is employed. The complete set of shallow shell equations, in combination with the adhesive-layer equation...

An analysis is presented for the free vibration characteristics of isotropic and laminated composite truncated circular conical shells including transverse shear deformation. All components of translatory and rotatory inertia are included. The applicability of linear shell theory due to Reissner is assumed, and governing equations are solved for the natural frequencies and mode shapes by using a combination of modal iteration and transfer matrix approach for different boundary conditions. Natural frequencie...
Near-surface topology and flow structure on a delta wing
Yavuz, Mehmet Metin; Rockwell, D (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), 2004-02-01)
The streamlines, and the corresponding patterns of velocity and vorticity, are characterized on a plane immediately adjacent to the surface of a delta wing using a laser-based technique of high-image-density particle image velocimetry. This technique provides the sequence of instantaneous states, as well as the corresponding time-averaged state, of the near-surface streamline topology and the associated critical points. These topological features are interpreted in terms of patterns of averaged and unsteady...

Unsteady flowfields around airfoils oscillating in pitch and associated dynamic stall phenomena are inves-tigated. A viscous flow analysis and a simplified vortical flow analysis, both based on an integro-differentialformulation of the Navier-Stokes equations are developed and calibrated. The formulation of the viscous flowanalysis confines computations only to the viscous flow zone and leads to an efficient zonal solution procedure.In the simplified vortical flow...
