Abstract : This work presents modal analysis of a Smart hybrid composite beam (SHCB) in cantilever configuration, constituted of LY551 resin by enclosed shape memory alloy (SMA) wires amidst layers of 0/90 glass fibers. The overall properties of the SHCB are estimated using method of mixtures, and the beam tip deflection and frequencies are first calculated analytically. Finite element studies are conducted to determine the beam tip deflections and frequencies of vibration. Comparative study of the analytical, and FEA results has been presented.
