Abstract:

The simple thickness modes for isotropic laminated media with layering both parallel and perpendicular to the plate free surfaces are studied according to the Effective Stiffness theory and the results obtained are compared to results found from the Effective Modulus theory. Results are presented in a number of graphs depicting the variation of dimensionless frequency with changes in dimensionless thickness ratio. Author-PL
