The paper presents the response of a three-layered annular plate with damaged laminated facings to the loads acting in their planes. The presented problem concerns the analysis of the combination of global plate failure in the form of buckling with the local micro defects, like fibre or matrix cracks, located in the laminas. The plate structure consists of thin laminated, fibre-reinforced composite facings and a thicker foam core. The matrix and fibre cracks of facings laminas can be transversally symmetrically or asymmetrically located in plate structure. Critical static and dynamic stability analyses were carried out solving the problem numerically and analytically. The numerical results show the static and dynamic stability state of the composite plate with different combinations of damages. The final results are compared with those for undamaged structure of the plate and treated as quasi-isotropic ones. The analysed problem makes it possible to evaluate the use of the non-ideal composite plate structure in practical applications.
The paper presents the solutions, calculation results and dynamic observations of three-layers, annular plate with thick core subjected to increasing in time load. The presented solutions use approximate methods: orthogonalization method and finite difference method in analytical and numerical solution of the problem, and finite element method. The observed phenomenon of the reduction of critical load values of the plates, in which the buckling mode is not global and there are different additional deflections of respective plate layers was comprehensively analysed in order to evaluate the critical state and supercritical plate behaviour. The critical deformation could have a form with strong deformation in the region of the loaded plate edge. The observation of the dynamic behaviour of plates, which buckling modes have circumferential waves is an important element of the analysis. Presented in this work the analytical and numerical solution to the problem of dynamic plate deflection was generalized on the case of plates with buckling waves in circumferential direction.
The paper presents dynamic responses of annular plate composed of three layers. The middle layer of the plate has electrorheological properties expressed by the Bingham body model. The plate is loaded in the plane of facings with time-dependent forces. The electrorheological effect is observed in the area of supercritical plate behaviour. The influence of both material properties and geometrical dimensions of the core on plate behaviour is examined. The problem is solved analytically and numerically using the orthogonalization method and the finite difference method. Comparison of the results obtained using the finite difference and the finite element methods for a plate in critical state is shown. The numerical calculations are carried out for axisymmetric and asymmetric plate modes. The presented diagrams show the plate reaction to the changes in values of plate parameters and indicate that the supercritical control of plate work is possible.
The paper presents the dynamic behaviour of three-layer annular plates with damaged facings. The plate is composed of thin laminated, fibre-reinforced composite facings and thicker, foam core. Failure of the plate facings is modelled as fibre or matrix cracks. The plate loaded in the plane of facings with quickly increasing radially compressed forces loses its dynamic stability. Evaluation of the critical state of the plate with failures was carried out using both analytical and numerical solutions. The comparison of results between plates with material properties treated as isotropic, quasi-isotropic and composite has been conducted. Presented tables and figures create the image of dynamic responses of examined composite plates with structure failures.
