Static bending and free vibration analysis of functionally graded porous plates laid on elastic foundation using the meshless method
This paper presents a numerical approach for static bending and free vibration analysis of the functionally graded porous plates (FGPP) resting on the elastic foundation using the refined quasi-3D sinusoidal shear deformation theory (RQSSDT) combined with the Moving Kriging–interpolation meshfree method. The plate theory considers both shear deformation and thickness-stretching effects by the sinusoidal distribution of the in-plane displacements, satisfies the stress-free boundary conditions on the top and bottom surfaces of the plate without shear correction coefficient. The advantage of the plate theory is that the displacement field of plate is approximated by only four variables leading to reduce computational efforts. Comparison studies are performed for the square FGPP with simply supported all edges to verify the accuracy of the present approach. The effect of the aspect ratio, volume fraction exponent, and elastic foundation parameters on the static deflections and natural frequency of FGPP are also investigated and discussed.
