Static and harmonic analysis of moderately thick square sandwich plate using FEM
Manoj Nawariya, Avadesh K. Sharma, Pankaj Sonia and Vijay Verma

    In this paper, sandwich plate, constructed with orthotropic and isotropic composite materials, is analyzed to obtain the static and harmonic behavior. The analysis is done by using ANSYS APDL FEM tool. A solid-shell 190 and an 8-node solid 185 elements are employed for face and core material respectively to analyze the plate. Results was attained by using Reissner-Mindlin theory. Effect of increasing thickness ratio of face sheet to depth of the plate is presented on static, vibration and harmonic response on the sheet and the results are discussed briefly. Published work in open domain was used to validate the results and observed excellent agreement. It can be stated that proposed model presents results with remarkable accuracy. Results are obtained to reduce the weight of the plate and minimizing the vibration amplitudes.
