Letter to the editor. On the vibration of one-dimensional periodic structures

By N.G. Stephen


A strcuture is said to be periodic, or repetitive, when its construction takes the form of a spatially repeated cell; a honeycomb sandwich panel is a good example of a two-dimensional (plate-lie) periodic structure, whilst examples of one-dimensional (beam-like) periodic structures include rail track supported on equi-spaced sleepers, and trusses employed to provide a large span. A review of the various approaches to their analysis was given by Noor (1) in 1988; more recently Mead (2) has provided an overview of the contributions made by researchers at the University of Southampton
