Abstract

An elastodynamic analysis of quadrilateral carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced functionally graded composite plates subjected to a transverse sudden dynamic load is studied. Based on the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT), the element-free IMLS-Ritz method is extended to conduct a numerical simulation for this study. Convergence studies are conducted to verify the stability and accuracy of the element-free IMLS-Ritz method. Detailed numerical simulations are further carried out to investigate the effect of CNT volume fraction, CNT distribution type, side angles, area of quadrilateral plate, plate width-to-thickness ratio and boundary condition on the dynamic behaviors of quadrilateral CNT reinforced composite plates.
