Abstract

In this paper, the material nonlinearity is introduced in the dynamic modeling of fiber-reinforced composite thin plates, and a new nonlinear vibration model of such composite plate structures with amplitude-dependent property is established with the consideration of the nonlinear stiffness and damping characteristics, which is observed and confirmed in the nonlinear vibration characterization experiment. In this new model, the elastic moduli and loss factors are expressed as the function of strain energy density on the basis of Jones–Nelson material nonlinear model. By using the identified parameters under different excitation amplitudes, these elastic moduli and loss factors are characterized as the function of the maximum dimensionless strain energy density. Then, the power function fitting technique is used to determine the nonlinear stiffness and damping parameters in the model, and the nonlinear natural frequencies, vibration responses and damping ratios of a TC300 carbon/epoxy composite thin plate are calculated and measured in a case study. The comparisons between the theoretical and experimental results show that the maximum calculation error of natural frequencies with consideration of amplitude-dependent property is less than 4.3%, and the maximum calculation errors of resonant response and damping results are no more than 12.5 and 9.6% in the 3rd mode and the 6th mode, respectively. Therefore, the practicability and reliability of the proposed model have been verified.
