Layered beam vibrations including slip
This study presents a theory for vibrations of layered beams with the effects of interlayer slip included. The theory is developed using Bernoulli-Euler assumptions with additional developments to account for the interlayer movement. The development is general, in the small deflection sense, for beams with mechanical connections. The development leads to governing equations for beams having both dual and single axes of symmetry and an arbitrary number of layers. Solutions to the governing equations are presented in closed form for various sets of boundary conditions. These solutions show the ...
