    The substructuring method provides a suitable tool to conduct modal analysis of large and complicated structures. In this method the original structure is decomposed into simpler and smaller substructures, and the dynamic properties of the resulting substructures are first evaluated independently. The original structure’s dynamic properties are subsequently estimated by coupling the substructures’ dynamic results. In this procedure, the boundary conditions need to be imposed in such a way that the overall behaviour of the original structure is properly represented. Substructuring method can be used in different types of dynamic analysis. The focus of this paper is on the modal type of...

    By developing composites, difficulties of modeling of degradation of properties as stiffness is most considered. The recent advances in the modeling of degradations in stratified composites have led to improved models on all scales. Macro scales methods are good to estimate fracture but not to estimate the failure in micro scale (as microcrack) and moreover, they need many experimental data. Therefore by considering a stratified structure which contains fiber, matrix and intermediate area, mesoscale modeling method is most suitable. In this research Micromechanical Progressive Algorithm (MPA) is used. The method employed is Micromechanic Method of Fracture (MMF). In this work by developing a...
