FREQUENCY ANALYSIS OF CRACKED FUNCTIONALLY GRADED CANTILEVER BEAM

Nguyen Ngoc Huyen, Nguyen Tien Khiem

Abstract


In this paper, a functionally graded cantilever beam with an open crack is investigated on the base of Timoshenko beam theory; power law of functionally graded material (FGM) and taking into account actual position of neutral axis instead of the central one. The open and edge crack is modeled by coupled translational and rotational springs stiffness of which is calculated by the formulas conducted accordingly to fracture mechanics. Using the frequency equation obtained in the framework of the theory natural frequencies of the beam are examined along the crack parameters and material properties. This analysis demonstrates that sensitivity of natural frequencies of FGM beam to crack is strongly dependent on the material constants of FGM
