Contents 1. Introduction -- 2. Historical review on the linear and nonlinear damped structural behavior of composite structures -- 3. Linear material coupling effect on structural damping of composite beams and blades -- 4. Nonlinear damping mechanics and finite element model for the static and damped free-vibration analysis of composite strips -- 5. Nonlinear dynamic response of composite plate-beams -- 6. Prediction of nonlinear damped response of large-scale blade composite structures -- 7. Conclusions and suggestions for future research topics
Summary This book concerns the development of novel finite elements for the structural analysis of composite beams and blades. The introduction of material damping is also an important aspect of composite structures and it is presented here in terms of their static and dynamic behavior
