(Received 15 May 1989, and in revised form 7 December 1989) A method of direct numerical integration of the frequency-ratio expression is proposed to study the non-linear free vibration behaviour of rectangular cross-ply laminates. The proposed method, even with singie-term approximations for the admissillie functions, yields results that agree very well with the existing perturbation solutions. Non-linear behaviour of the cross-ply laminates is also studied with the harmonic oscillations assumption, by using the conservation of energy and the modal equation. The results are found to be lower and upper bounds to those obtained from the direct numerical integration method. It is also observed that the arithmetic mean of the two solutions with the harmonic oscillations assumption matches very well with that of the direct numerical integration method. Non-linear vibration characteristics are obtained for several configurations of cross-ply plates. Results for orthotropic and isotropic plates are also obtained as special cases.

Composite materials are finding increasing applications in modern aerospace and automobile structures. This is primarily due to their high strength and stiffness to weight ratio, and the lower machining and maintenance costs associated with composite materials. However, the analysis of composite structures is more complex when compared to metallic structures, because composite structures are anisotropic and are characterized by bendingstretching coupling. Very often these structures are subjected to severe environmental conditions, which necessitates the study of their vibration behaviour in the non-linear domain. This topic has attracted many researchers and a number of approximate methods have been developed, in view of the complexity of the problem, to study the non-linear vibration behaviour of cross-ply plates, which are of common occurence in practical structures such as solar panels. Sathyamoorthy [l] and Chia [2] have presented many references on approximate analytical methods and numerical methods for large amplitude vibrations of plates. Ambartsumyan [3] and Hassert and Nowinski [4] reported on non-linear vibrations of single-layer orthotropic plates. Wu and Vinson [5] evaluated non-linear frequencies of orthotropic plates using Berger’ s [6] approximation. Furthermore, Wu and Vinson [7] extended their earlier work to symmetric laminates. The lack of symmetry about the mid-plane of a laminate exhibits bending-stretching coupling. The effect of this coupling in non-linear dynamic plate theory was recognized

A number of sample problems are presented to illustrate the accuracy and effectiveness of the method. The material of each layer is assumed to possess a plane of elastic symmetry parallel to the mid-plane (x-y plane). a direct numerical integration method which does not suffer from this problem is proposed to study the non-linear free flexural vibrations of antisymmetric cross-ply plates. w are the mid-plane displacements in the X.214 G. by Whitney and Leissa [8]. yielding two solutions based on energy conservation and the equation of motion.~.

Effects of modulus ratio and aspect ratio on non-linear frequency are brought out. the expressions (21b) and (22) by themselves show that the sign of the amplitude can alter the non-linear frequency and frequency ratios. Results are given for two mode shapes. (17). A similar trend in the behaviour of the frequencies also can be seen at higher modes (m = 2. n = 1. n = 1). Furthermore. rn = 1. the effect of non-linearity increases with amplitude. from the table it can be seen that for the mode m = 2. RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS (23) On the basis of the results for the frequency ratios given by the above different methods. the expressions (16) and (17) yield upper and lower bounds respectively on the frequency ratios.16-181. Further. Linear frequencies for plates of various aspect ratios and different number of layers have been computed and on comparison with those of Jones [14] they are found to be exactly the same. orthotropic. The frequency ratio computed from expressions (18) and (22) are in good agreement with those of reference [15] and the one computed from equation (17) compare well with those of references [13.10. The frequency ratios ( OJ~JOJ~) for a square isotropic plate are presented in Table 1. The linear frequency parameter AL= (cob’ / r2)w for isotropic plates and hL = (cob*/ 7r2)J12 C piti/ ETt3 for orthotropic and cross-ply plates are given in Tables l-10. in the absence of p (p =0 for square cross-ply plates). Boundary conditions of the type shown in equation (10) are used in Tables l-4 and 11 for purposes of comparison and the results for boundary conditions (11) are presented in Tables 5. The frequency ratios for a rectangular plate of aspect ratio two are given in Table 2. It can be noticed that no solution is assumed in time when deriving the expressions for the non-linear frequency (21b) and the frequency ratio (22). thus they are not presented here. it is found that the present numerical integration scheme yields results which match with those of the perturbation method for the isotropic. n = 1 and m = 2.

It is clear from the table that a two-layered plate has the largest oNL/wL for all amplitudes. it is clearly seen that as the aspect ratio increases. The effect of sign and magnitude of the amplitude (solution of equation (22)) on the non-linear frequency ratio for a simply supported six layered antisymmetric cross-ply (0’ /90“). results for a rectangular plate show behaviour tendencies similar to those of a square plate. Further results for symmetric and antisymmetric cross-ply plates based on the direct numerical integration scheme are presented in Tables 5-10. n = 1 at all the amplitudes.. the two-layered plate shows the largest non-linearity for m = 1. From the results presented in Tables 5-10 it can be seen that for antisymmetric cross-ply plates. The two symmetric lay-ups presented in Table 5 have the same non-linear frequency for M = 1. expression (17) match very well with those of references [ 13.and four-layered antisymmetric and four-layered symmetric cross-ply plates. n = 1 and m = 2. Furthermore. whereas the symmetric lay-up (oO/90°/900/oO) has the smallest (for m = 1. and different stack sequences. the non-linearity increases for the first fundamental mode. n = 1. 2 and 4. For the two symmetric lay-ups considered no general conclusion could be drawn. The non-linear frequency to linear frequency ratio values at different amplitudes for a square orthotropic and two layered cross-ply are presented in Tables 3 and 4 along with values from references [lo.220 G. 121. n = 1 and so on. Results for rectangular plates of aspect ratio four.. and reduces with increase in number of layers. is shown in Table 11.. which differs appreciably in symmetric stacks. n = 1 and for rectangular plates say a/b = 2. In Table 5 are given the frequency ratios for various amplitudes. because wNL/wL ratios are mainly dependent on the bending stiffness distribution in the two directions. it can be observed that the effect of non-linearity is greater for plates of higher modulus ratios. n = 1 and have a large variation in the other mode: i. modulus ratio and for higher modes (e.16-181.e. n = 1 when compared to a four-layered symmetric cross-ply (Oa/900/900/0a). whereas the four-layered symmetric stack (90°/Oo/Oo/900) has the smallest non-linearity. it can be seen that the proposed direct numerical integration scheme with a one term approximation to the in-plane and lateral displacements predicts the non-linear free-vibration behaviour of isotropic. The two symmetric lay-ups chosen. From Tables 1 and 2. The modulus ratio considered in these computations is 10. It can be seen that a close agreement exists between the present values obtained by using equations (18) and (22) and the referenced values. (O”/90°/900/Oo) and (90°/Oo/Oo/900). the two symmetric stacks have exactly the same non-linear frequency for the mode m = 2. m = 2. From all these comparisons. By comparing the frequency ratios of Tables 5-7 with the corresponding ratios of Tables 8-10. n = 1. rectangular plate (a/b = 2-O). it can be seen that wNL/wL increases with aspect ratio for the first three lay-ups and decreases for a symmetric lay-up (90°/Oo/Oo/9~). m = 2. n = l).g. The table contains solutions for two. n = 1 and m = 2. n = 1.e. It . In Tables 8-10 are given frequency ratios at various amplitudes for plates having aspect ratios 1. As in Table 5. for square plate having modulus ratio 40.

However. with immovable edges. the frequency ratio uNL/uL reduces with increase in number of layers for an antisymmetric lay-up. for rn = 1. are given in Table 7. the frequency ratio (wNL/wL) increases with increase of aspect ratio. will yield the same frequency for a square plate with m = 1. with m = 2. n = 1). with the total thickness of the plate kept constant. Otherwise. On comparison with results of Table 5. The four-layered antisymmetric lay-up is found to have small wNL/oL at all the amplitudes for m = 1. n = 1 and m = 2. the symmetric lay-up (90°/Oo/00/900) shows the reverse trend. Furthermore. i.
