This study investigates the vibration, buckling and dynamic instability characteristics of damaged cross-ply and angle-ply laminated plate like beam under follower loading using the finite element approach. The damage is anisotropic in nature and parametrically incorporated into the composite using the concept of reduction in stiffness. It has been observed that damage shows a strong orthogonality and in general deteriorates the vibration and buckling characteristics. For follower type of loading, analysis is carried out on plate like beam structure to obtain the flutter characteristics. The effects of damage and its location on flutter characteristics are studied. The desirable position of damage on the plate like beam structure based on different stability behavior is discussed. The results show that flutter is observed as primary modes of instability when damaged plate like beam is subjected to follower loads. The behavior of flutter characteristics for different damaged parameters is discussed.
