New approach to investigate nonlinear dynamic response and vibration of imperfect functionally graded carbon nanotube reinforced composite double curved shallow shells subjected to blast load and temperature

This paper presents a new approach – using analytical solution to investigate nonlinear dynamic response and vibration of imperfect functionally graded carbon nanotube reinforced composite (FG-CNTRC) double curved shallow shells. The double curved shallow shells are reinforced by single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) which vary according to the linear functions of the shell thickness. The shells are resting on elastic foundations and subjected to blast load and temperature. The shell's effective material properties are assumed to depend on temperature and estimated through the rule of mixture. By applying higher order shear theory, Galerkin method and fourth-order Runge–Kutta method and the Airy stress function, nonlinear dynamic response and natural frequency for thick imperfect FG-CNTRC double curved shallow shells are determined. In numerical results, the influences of geometrical parameters, elastic foundations, initial imperfection, temperature increment and nanotube volume fraction on the nonlinear vibration of the FG-CNTRC double curved shallow shells are investigated. The proposed results are validated by comparing with those of other authors.
