Random vibration and reliability of composite structures

Gabriel Cederbaum, Liviu Librescua, Isaac Elishakoff, Jacob Aboudi

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


A presentation is given of a wide spectrum of problems related to the random response and the reliability of composite structures. The general topics addressed include: random vibration of laminated composite plates, dynamic response of moderately thick laminated composite shells to random excitation, response of laminated plates to nonstationary random excitation, reliability of composite laminated plates, micromechanics of fiber-reinforced composites, random vibration of viscoelastic laminated plates, reliability of composites based on micromechanically predicted strength and fatigue criteria.
