Title: The forced vibration of a partially delaminated beam
Authors: Menday, Roger
Issue Date: 1999
Publisher: © Roger Menday
Abstract: The forced vibration of a partially delaminated structure such as an aircraft wing can result in catastrophic crack growth. In order to look at the underlying mechanism of the dynamics and failure of the material, a simplified model of a cantilever beam with a single delamination at its free end is considered. We investigate a number of aspects of this system, using mathematical models to gain insight into its behaviour. [Continues.]
