Paper Abstract

In order to improve the predictions of dynamic behavior in laminated composite structures, several lower vibration modes from experimental results are used to update the mechanical properties followed by the updated frequencies. As an updating process of the natural frequencies, the optimization algorithm based on conjugate gradient method is adopted. The mechanical properties of lamina, E1, E2, (nu) 12 and G12, are design parameters for the identification process. The proposed method is applied to predict the dynamic behavior of laminated composite plates of [0]8T and [+/- 45]2S separately and interchangeably. Also, the mixed case for [0]8T and [+/- 45]2S is examined to check the possibility for the improved prediction generally. The good agreement is obtained between the measured frequencies and the numerical ones. Based on the results for all the cases studied, the proposed approach has a clear potential in characterizing the mechanical properties of composite lamina.
