Abstract

The governing differential equations of thick composite plates are used to study the free vibrations of multi-layer bimodulus composite plates. The effects of initial stresses and transverse shear deformations are included. The equilibrium equations are dependent on the unknown neutral surfaces. A iteration technique is used to solve the free vibration problems and to determine the neutral surface positions. The effect due to different moduli on frequencies is found to be significant for highly bimodulus materials.
