Coupling of Flexural and Longitudinal Damped Vibration in a Two-Layered Beam

Received18 Nov 1996
Revised06 Nov 1998


In dynamics, the effect of varying the constitutive materials’ thickness of a two-layered beam is investigated. Resonance frequencies and damping variations are determined. It is shown that for specific thicknesses the coupling of longitudinal and flexural vibrations influences the global modal damping ratio significantly.
