Abstract

We study numerically the influence of the presence of a complex internal structure of laminates, consisting of layers of different properties and variable thickness, on the dynamic response of the material. The influence of the internal structure of laminate layers on the signal propagation is demonstrated by several examples for periodic and double periodic laminates. It is also discovered that the influence of the mutual position of layers with different internal structure can be significant.

Keywords

wave propagation, multistructured solids, numerical simulations, laminates.
