Vibration analysis of heated anisotropic plates with free edge conditionsTabular and plotted results are presented (as a function of lamination angle and temperature) for the first two vibration frequencies and mode shapes of a heated, single-layer Boron/epoxy laminate. A Ritz formulation is used to determine the thermally induced in-plane forces and the out-of-plane vibration frequencies. This approach is formulated in terms of the out-of-plane displacement and the in-plane stress function; both the displacement and the stress function are expressed as simple algebraic polynomials modified to satisfy the essential boundary conditions. Heating is applied as a steady-state temperature distribution; material properties are considered to be temperature-dependent. To establish the correctness and effectiveness of the method, the in-plane forces are compared with Fourier series analytical results.
