T1 MODELING OF THIN COMPOSITE LAMINATES WITH GENERAL ANISOTROPY UNDER HARMONIC VIBRATIONS BY THE ASYMPTOTIC HOMOGENIZATION METHOD JF International Journal for Multiscale Computational Engineering JO JMC YR 2017 FD 2017-06-29 VO 15 IS 3 SP 219 OP 237 K1 thin composite laminates K1 asymptotic homogenization method K1 plate theory K1 free vibrations K1 local problems K1 finite method AB A new approach to the asymptotic homogenization theory for thin composite laminates with general anisotropy of elastic modules under harmonic vibrations is suggested. The main purpose of the theory is to derive a closed explicit equation system for all six stress tensor components in composite laminates under vibrations, using 3D general equations for steady oscillations of elastic solids, by the asymptotic homogenization method. Unlike the classical homogenization analysis of 3D periodicity structures, our approach was applied to thin laminates with a constant thickness, but without any periodicity through the plate thickness. Recurrent chains of local vibration problems were deduced by the homogenization method, and closed-form solutions of these problems were found for thin laminates. This method allows us to compute all six stressesâ€™ distributions in a plate including normal through-thickness and shear interlayer stresses for the case of general anisotropy in elastic modules. Unlike the classical plate theories, for the case of general anisotropy in elastic modules, when there are 21 elastic constants, the displacementsâ€™ distribution through a plate thickness is not linear. Longitudinal displacements proved to be linear functions of the coordinate along a plate thickness only for special anisotropy types — for monoclinic materials of plate layers, whose elastic modulesâ€™ symmetry plane is parallel to a middle plane of the plate. Computations by the developed method and by a 3D-?nite-element method solving the three-dimensional problem on free vibrations were compared, which showed a high accuracy of the developed method in calculation of natural frequencies and all six stresses in the plate.
