Abstract:

THE PROPOSED RESEARCH PROGRAM IS DIRECTED TOWARDS IMPROVING THE DAMPING OF AUTOMOTIVE STRUCTURAL AND MECHANICAL COMPONENTS. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY EXPLOITING THE STRESS COUPLING OF ANISOTROPIC COMPOSITE MATERIAL STRUCTURAL SUBSYSTEMS FOR USE IN LAMINATED CONSTRUCTIONS. THE SUBSYSTEM IS A SANDWICH COMPONENT WITH ELASTIC FACES ANDVISCOELASTIC CORE. A STRUCTURAL DESIGN IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL INCREASE THE LEVEL OF STRESSING AND THUS ENERGY DISSIPATION IN THE VISCOELASTIC LAYERS. SUCH A DESIGN WOULDHAVE WIDESPREAD USE AS A TOOL FOR NOISE AND VIBRATION CONTROL. THE SUCCESS OF THE DESIGN WILL LEAD TO A NUMBER OFCOMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS BOTH WITHIN AND OUT OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY.
