Instability and Bifurcation Behavior of Orthotropic S-FGM Plates Under Lateral Stochastic Loads Considering Variation of Material Properties
|Published in:||International Journal of Structural Stability and Dynamics, March 2016, n. 3, v. 16|
In this paper, all the parameters affecting the nonlinear behavior of S-FGM plates under lateral stochastic white noise excitations are investigated. First the governing equation for a general S-FGM plate is derived for the assumed problem. Then it is rewritten by introducing some nondimensional parameters such that the results are applicable for a wide range of plates. Without loss of generality and using an example, the effective parameters on the instability and bifurcation of the transverse vibration of plates are studied, including the mean value of the lateral load with the in-plane forces and the material property. Especially, the role of material property is highlighted and some analogical figures are drawn to compare the behavior of the FGM plates with the homogenous ones. It is shown that the material property can affect the behavior of instability and bifurcation of the plate and its occurrence.
