Vibration Control in Fibre-Reinforced Composite Structures

  • A. R. Roslan
  • M. S. Leong


Machines inevitably generate unwanted vibration which are then transmitted into the substructures via their mountings. The resulting vibration subsequently transmits via various propagation waves to adjoining structures or regions where structure-borne noise radiation occurs. It is usually necessary to control excessive vibration such as to avoid potential fatigue failure to structures. Attempts can been made to control vibration at the point of vibration generation to the substructure to reduce the transmission of vibrational power flow to remote areas.
