Özet

This paper deals with free vibration analysis of simply supported laminated composite plates using first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT). The displacement field of a laminated composite plate is given for FSDT. The numerical studies are conducted to determine the effect of width-to-thickness ratio, degree of orthotropy, fiber orientation, aspect ratio on the nondimensionalized fundamental frequency for laminated composite plates. Also, the effect of shear deformation, rotatory inertia and shear correction coefficient on the nondimensionalized fundamental frequency is examined. A MATLAB code is written for free vibration of laminated plates. However, the problem is modeled using finite element package program ANSYS for different meshes. Finally, the results are given in graphical and tabular form and compared.
