|Abstract:||A strip element method is presented for analyzing wave scattering by a crack in a composite laminate submerged in a fluid. In this method, the fluid and laminated plate are modeled using hvo-nodal-line and three-nodal-line strip elements, respectively. A system of governing equations of the fluid and solid strip elements in frequency domain are derived using a variational method and the Hamilton principle, which are converted as a set of characteristic equations in wave number domain by applying Fourier transform techniques. A particular solution to the equations is obtained using a modal analysis method in conjunction with inverse Fourier transform techniques. A complementary . solution to the equations is found employing horizontal boundary conditions on cross sections at the crack tips. The addition of the particular and complementary solutions yields a general solution. Numerical examples are presented for immersed steel and composite plates with either a horizontal or a vertical crack. Computed results indicate that the fluid has considerable influence on the wave fields scattered by a crack in a composite laminate. Copyright © 1999 by ASME.|
