A C0-HSDT free vibration of magneto-electro-elastic functionally graded porous plates using a moving Kriging meshfree method
We are happy to announce that Dr. Thai Hoang Chien and colleagues recently published their work entitled "A C0-HSDT free vibration of magneto-electro-elastic functionally graded porous plates using a moving Kriging meshfree method" in the Aerospace Science and Technology.
This research examines the natural vibration analysis of magneto-electro-elastic functionally graded porous (MEE-FGP) plates. The study employs a moving Kriging (MK) meshfree method to analyze the MEE-FGP plates composed of piezoelectric and piezomagnetic materials with both even and uneven distributions of porosity. The electric and magnetic potentials in the three-dimension are assumed to follow a combination of cosine and linear variations in the thickness direction to satisfy the Maxwell equations in the two-dimension. The displacement field, electric potential and magnetic potential are approximated by the MK interpolation shape function, which satisfies the Kronecker's delta property. This property allows to impose directly essential boundary conditions as those in the finite element method. The governing equilibrium equations are derived using a C0-type higher-order shear deformation plate theory (C0-HSDT) in conjunction with the virtual work principle and then solved using the MK meshfree method. Various geometries are performed to determine the natural frequency of MEE-FGP plates. The impact of the porosity distribution, porosity volume fraction, volume fraction index, initial external electric voltage, initial magnetic potential and geometry on the natural frequency of the MEE-FGP plates is fully investigated. Numerical results provide an effective approach to analyze and calculate the natural vibration of MEE-FGP plates.
