Abstract

Supersonic flutter characteristics of cylindrical sandwich panels made of a saturated functionally graded porous (FGP) core and two homogeneous face sheets are studied in this paper based on the Biot’s poroelasticity theory. The third-order shear deformation theory (TSDT) is used to model the panel and the piston theory is hired to estimate the aerodynamic pressure create by the supersonic fluid flow. First, the set of the governing equations are solved numerically via generalized differential quadrature method (GDQM) and natural frequencies are calculated for various boundary conditions. Then, convergence of the solution is confirmed and its accuracy is demonstrated by comparing the results with those reported by other authors. Finally, the effects of geometrical parameters of the panel, thickness of the porous core, porosity distribution pattern, porosity parameter (size of pores), compressibility of pore fluid and yaw angle (fluid flow direction) on the flutter boundaries of FGP sandwich panels are investigated.
