Analyzing the Impact of Non-Homogeneity on the Vibrational Dynamics of Orthotropic Visco-Elastic Rectangular Plates with Linearly Varying Thickness

Dr. Neerie Agarwal [2]


Abstract: This study delves into the vibrational behavior of orthotropic visco-elastic rectangular plates with linearly varying thickness, particularly under the influence of non-homogeneity. This aspect has gained significance due to its implications in high-temperature scenarios, such as those encountered by hypersonic vehicles. The research employs Galerkins technique to solve the fourth-order partial differential equation of motion, considering small deflection and linear visco-elastic properties. The study focuses on the effect of non-homogeneity parameters on the deflection, time period, and logarithmic decrement of the plates vibration in various modes. It reveals a correlation between the non-homogeneity parameters, taper constant, and aspect ratio with the vibrational characteristics of the plate, presenting a comprehensive understanding of these dynamics.
