This study is mainly concerned with a "General Approach" to the "Theoretical Analysis and the Solution of the Free Vibrations Response of Integrally-Stiffened and/or Stepped-Thickness Plates or Panels with Two or more Integral Plate Stiffeners". In general, the "Stiffened System" (regardless of the number of "Plate Stiffeners") is considered to be composed of dissimilar "Orthotropic Mindlin Plates" with unequal thicknesses. The dynamic governing equations of the individual plate elements of the "System" and the stress resultant-displacement expressions are combined and algebraically manipulated. These operations lead to a new "Governing System of the First Order Ordinary Differential Equations" in "state vector" forms. The new "Governing System of Equations" facilitates the direct application of the present method of solution, namely, the "Modified Transfer Matrix Method (MTMM) (with Interpolation Polynomials)". As shown in the present study, the "MTMM" is general to handle the "Free Vibrations Response" of the "Stiffened System" (with, at least, one or up to three or four "Integral Plate Stiffeners"). The present analysis and the method of solution are applied to the typical "Stiffened Plate or Panel System with Two Integral Plate Stiffeners". The mode shapes with their natural frequencies are presented for the "Isotropic Al-Alloy" and "Orthotropic Composite" cases and for several sets of support conditions. As an additional example, the case of the "Stiffened Plate or Panel System with Three Integral Plate Stiffeners" is also considered and is shown in terms of the mode shapes and their natural frequencies for one set of the boundary conditions. Also, some parametric studies of the natural frequencies versus the "Stiffener Thickness Ratio" and the "Stiffener Length (or Width) Ratio" are investigated and are graphically presented.

Free bending vibrations of integrally-stiffened and/or stepped-thickness rectangular plates or panels with a non-central plate stiffener
Yuceoglu, U.; GEMALMAYAN, NİHAT; Sunar, O. (2007-11-16)
The present study is primarily concerned with the "Free Bending Vibrations of Integrally-Stiffened and/or Stepped-Thickness Plates or Panels with a Non-Central Plate Stiffener". The general theoretical formulation is based on the "Mindlin Plate Theory". The plate elements of the system are considered to be made of dissimilar orthotropic materials with unequal thicknesses. The transverse shear deformations and the transverse and the rotary moments of inertia of plate elements are included in the analysis. Th...
Numerical investigation of delamination in L-shaped cross-ply composite bracket
Gümüş, M.; Gözlüklü, B.; Çöker, Demirkan (null; 2014-01-01)
Interlaminar normal stresses are induced with interlaminar shear stresses leading to mixed-mode delamination (MMD) in curved cross-ply composite laminates. Dynamic mixed-mode delamination is studied using explicit finite element method and Cohesive Zone Modelling Dynamic response of the specimen is compared with the experiments.
Analysis of fiber reinforced composite vessel under hygrothermal loading
Sayman, Sümeyra; Parnas, Kemal Levend; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
The aim of this study is to develop an explicit analytical formulation based on the anisotropic elasticity theory that determines the behavior of fiber reinforced composite vessel under hygrothermal loading. The loading is studied for three cases separately, which are plane strain case, free ends and pressure vessel cases. For free-end and pressure vessel cases, the vessel is free to expand, on the other hand for plane strain case, the vessel is prevented to expand. Throughout the study, constant, linear an...
EVALUATION OF TRANSVERSE SHEAR MODULI OF COMPOSITE SANDWICH BEAMS THROUGH THREE-POINT BENDING TESTS
Şener, Özgün; ATALAY, OĞUZ; ATASOY, MERT; Kayran, Altan (2018-11-15)
Transverse shear moduli of the sandwich core and flexural stiffness of all-composite sandwich constructions are determined with three-point beam bending tests, and compared with the analytical and finite element analysis solutions. Additionally, Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system is employed to validate the experimental results by monitoring the displacements. The effect of orientation of the composite core material with respect to the beam axis on the shear modulus of the core material itself, flexural...
INVESTIGATION OF THE MICROSTRUCTURE AND HARDNESS OF SiCP REINFORCED ALUMINUM MATRIX COMPOSITES
MAKSZIMUS, Andrea; GACSI, Zoltan; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2007-10-16)
The purpose of this study is to find a relationship between the parameters describing the microstructural homogeneity of SiC particle reinforced Al metal matrix composites. The Al-SiC powder mixtures having different particle size combinations were hot-pressed after careful mixing. The optical microscope images of the microstructures were processed by using an image analyzing program; the binary morphology was chosen for characterizing the SiC particle distribution.
