Laboratoire des Matériaux et Hydrologie, Université de Sidi Bel Abbes, Département de Génie Civil, Faculté de Technologie, Algérie
In this study, free vibration analysis of simply supported sandwich plate resting on elastic foundation is examined. In this model, the displacements vary as a sinusoidal function across the plate thickness and satisfy zero shear stress condition at the top and bottom surfaces of the plate. The governing equations are derived by employing the principle of Hamilton, These equations are solved via Navier type and the dynamic results are presented by solving eigenvalue problems. The numerical results obtained through the present analysis for free vibration are presented and compared with those available in the literature.
