Free vibration analysis of sandwich beams with FG porous core and FGM faces resting on Winkler elastic foundation by various shear deformation theories
This paper studies the free vibration behavior of a sandwich beam resting on Winkler elastic foundation. The sandwich beam is composed of two FGM face layers and a functionally graded (FG) porous core. A common general form of different beam theories is proposed and the equations of motion are formulated using Hamilton's principle. The result of the general form is validated against those of a particular case and shows a good agreement. The effect of different parameters on the fundamental natural frequency of the sandwich beam is investigated.
