Main Article Content
The vibration of the delaminated composites concerns the structure safety and dynamic behavior of the composite structures as it can be vital in the presence of delamination. In this research paper, analytical analysis, experimental work and finite element simulations are combined to analyze the vibration behavior at different delamination size, different stacking sequences. The boundary condition in this investigation were all sides clamped and cantilever supported. Analytical results were obtained using the first order shear deformation theory. Rayleigh-Ritz method was used to derive the governing equations to find the natural frequencies and the results were computed using Matlab tool. Experiments have been conducted to study the vibration characteristics of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite plate. The finite element analysis was done using software package, ANSYS is used to fetch the vibration response of carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite plate for CCCC boundary conditions, stacking sequences and delamination sizes. The results from analytical, experimental, and finite element analysis were then compared and verified that the maximum percentage of error is ignorable. It is seen that the natural frequencies of carbon fiber reinforced polymer decreased with an increase in delamination size. Stacking sequence of (0/90/45/90) showed higher values of natural frequencies subjected to all-sided clamped boundary conditions. It was interesting to know that there were small differences in values of natural frequencies for lower modes, but the difference gradually increased in case of higher modes.
Journal author rights
In order for Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration proprietary are defined below:
For subscription articles:
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to: Share their article for personal use (manuscript version); retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
For open access articles:
Authors sign an exclusive license agreement, where authors have copyright but license exclusive rights in their article to the publisher. In this case authors have the right to: share their article in the same ways permitted to third parties under the relevant user license; retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
Rights granted to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration
For both subscription and open access articles, published in proprietary titles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration is granted the following rights:
- The exclusive right to publish and distribute an article, and to grant rights to others, including for commercial purposes;
- For open access articles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration will apply the relevant third party user licence (Open access licencses) where Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration publishes the article on its online platforms;
