Effect of support conditions on the vibration of laminated composite beams

Laminated glass plate or beam used in the building industry is an architectural unit of the building formed by two or more thin glass plates or beams bonded together by an interlayer PVB (polyvinyl butyral). The behavior of laminated glass beams is complicated because the different materials have different elastic modulus. Laminated glass is very thin and can easily undergo large displacements, therefore, the equilibrium equations governing their behavior should be based on large deflection theory. In the present study, the effect of boundary conditions on the vibration of a laminated glass unit is investigated by considering the cases of simply supported and fixed supported laminated glass beams. Glass units considered in this study have two thin glass beams and an interlayer PVB. A mathematical model for the dynamic behavior of a laminated glass beam is developed using variational principles. The assumptions of the classical beam theory are valid. Three coupled partial differential equations which express the dynamic behavior are obtained for lateral and axial displacements. By solving these equations, the effect of boundary conditions on the natural frequencies is observed in figures depicting displacement versus angular frequency.


Effect of production parameters on porosity and hole properties in laser sintering rapid prototyping process
İlkgün, Özkan; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
Selective laser sintering (SLS) is a rapid prototyping method in which three-dimensional objects are constructed by sintering thin layers of a variety of powdered materials via laser beam. In SLS, as in most other Rapid Prototyping methods, the produced parts exhibit varying degrees of intrinsic porosity due to the discrete nature of layer-by-layer production. Selective scanning and discrete bonding of individual particles or clusters of particles impart local porosity, which is mostly an undesired trait as...
Design of a tuned vibration absorber for a slender hollow cylindrical structure
Aksoy, Tuğrul; Özgen, Gökhan Osman; Acar, Bülent (Informa UK Limited, 2020-09-01)
In this paper, details of the design work for a tuned vibration absorber to be used on a hollow cylindrical structure is presented. The vibration problem is of resonant type and the tuned vibration absorber is designed to suppress the displacement vibration response of the free end of the slender hollow structure dominated by the contribution of its lowest transverse vibration modes. The structure is modeled using a commercial finite element software. Finite element model of the structure is verified using ...
Evaluation of the Predictive Models for Stiffness, Strength, and Deformation Capacity of RC Frames with Masonry Infill Walls
Turgay, Tahsin; Durmus, Meril Cigdem; Binici, Barış; Ozcebe, Guney (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2014-10-01)
Buildings with masonry infill walls (MIWs) in reinforced concrete (RC) frames are commonly used all around the world. It is well known that infill walls may affect the strength, stiffness, and displacement ductility of the structural system. Different approaches have been adopted in different codes and guidelines to consider the stiffness and strength contribution of MIWs on RC frame behavior. This study compares the ability of the existing guidelines to estimate stiffness, strength, and deformability of RC...
Analysis of Laminated Glass Units
Vallabhan, C. V. Girija ; Das, YC; Magdi, M; Aşık, Mehmet Zülfü; Bailey, JR (1993-05-01)
Laminated glass units used for glazing buildings consist of two thin glass plates bonded together by a thin core material, called polyvinyl butyral (PVB). As the plates are usually thin and undergo large lateral displacements, the conventional thin plate theory cannot be applied; instead, a nonlinear theory of plates has to be employed. As well, the interlayer, though soft in material properties, provides significant change in the overall behavior of the composite. Variational calculus and minimum potent...
Effect of Delamination on the Strength of Laminated Glass Plate Structures
Aşık, Mehmet Zülfü (2013-11-17)
Laminated glass which consists of two glass sheets connected to each other with PVB interlayer is used in many engineering applications for years. Despite the long history of the use of laminated glass in buildings there are serious problems about delamination of laminated glass units. This paper provides information about delamination issues of laminated glass plate structures. Delamination of laminated glass unit may be due to the thinning of PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral) interlayer or the folds which occur dur...
