Bending waves in composite structures with random parameters
Modelling the vibration of composite structures requires including the effects of uncertain material properties of individual components at mid-frequency. A example here is a double-leaf elastic plate, which is often used in aeroplanes, walls and floors of a building. One needs to estimate the vibration when the components and the joints between them are not perfect. In this talk I will show how the random parameters are simulated and included in the model for the deflection of the structure.
