Title

Vibrations of Damaged Functionally Graded Cantilever Beams

Abstract

The paper discusses closed-form solutions of the problems of free and forced vibrations of a functionally graded cantilever FGM beam with and without damage. The mode of damage considered in the paper is represented by cracks that are perpendicular to the axis of the beam. Notably, such mode of damage was observed in experiments on representative FGM beams. Forced vibrations considered in the paper were generated by a kinematic excitation of the clamped end of the beam.
