Nowadays, there has been a search for alternatives to steel and alloys for several years, to combat the high cost of repair and maintenance of structures damaged by corrosion and heavy use. Structures made from composite materials are rapidly replacing metallic ones in every field because of their high strength-to-mass ratio. The increasing use of tailored composite materials in the design of important structural elements has necessitated the study of vibrational behavior of composite materials. Therefore different materials together are studied and optimum value of their composition and dimensions are to be formulated. This paper mainly deals with effect of variation in material composition and structural dimensions on vibrational behavior of composite materials.
