Dynamic analysis of sandwich beam with viscoelastic core under moving loads
Keywords:vibration, sandwich, viscoélastic material, damping, mov-ing load.
In this article, numerical approach is proposedfor dynamic behavior of symmetrical sandwich beams with viscoelastic core under movingload using the Hamilton's principle formulation and the finite element method solution. The dynamic responses are obtained for different configurations using the modal superposition method and the implicit Newmark integration scheme. The analysis shows that the viscoelastic damping has a significant effect on the vibration behavior involving the improvement of the damping of the structure. The parametric study of the effect of the configuration parameters shows that the sandwich structure has more dissipative capacities of vibratory energy by adopting adequate configurations to the structure.
