Abstract

Purpose: The study aims to analyze the free vibration behavior of functionally graded porous beams with non-uniform rectangular cross-sections, investigating four distinct porosity distribution across the beam's thickness. Methods: Utilizing the Euler–Bernoulli beam model and Hamilton’s principle, the equation of motion is derived. Four different boundary conditions (clamped–clamped, clamped-free, clamped–pinned, and pinned–pinned) are considered, and the resulting equation is solved using the differential transform method. Verification of accuracy is ensured through comparison with solutions for natural frequencies found in existing literature. Results and Conclusion: The study provides validated natural frequency solutions for functionally graded porous beams with non-uniform rectangular cross-sections, confirming the accuracy of the proposed method through literature comparison. A comprehensive parametric study reveals significant insights into the influence of various factors on natural frequencies, including porosity volume fractions, types of porosity distribution, taper ratios, and boundary conditions. These findings deepen our understanding of free vibration analysis for functionally graded porous beams, offering valuable guidance for engineering design and structural optimization in relevant applications.
