Thickness effects in the free vibration of laminated magneto-electro-elastic beams and plates
MetadataShow full item record
A semi-analytical discrete-layer approach is used to evaluate thickness eﬀects in the free vibration of laminated magneto-electro-elastic beams and plates under various lateral boundary conditions. To match the primary physical phenomenon and simplify the study, piecewise continuous approximations are used through the thickness direction and either continuous global polynomial or trigonometric functions are used to simulate the deﬂection in axial or planar displacement ﬁelds. Thin plate models can be recovered to predict frequency estimation for various boundary conditions and compared with ...
