Abstract: 

A cell-based smoothed finite element method using three-node Mindlin plate element (CS-FEM-MIN3) based on the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT) was recently proposed for static and dynamic analyses of Mindlin plates. In this paper, the CS-FEM-MIN3 is extended and incorporated with damping-spring systems for dynamic responses of sandwich and laminated composite plates resting on viscoelastic foundation subjected to a moving mass. The plate-foundation system is modeled as a discretization of three-node triangular plate elements supported by discrete springs and dashpots at the nodal points representing the viscoelastic foundation. The position of the moving mass with specified velocity on triangular elements at any time is defined, and then the moving mass is transformed into loads at nodes of elements. The accuracy and reliability of the proposed method is verified by comparing its numerical solutions with those of others available numerical results. A parametric examination is also conducted to determine the effects of various parameters on the dynamic response of the plates on the viscoelastic foundation subjected to a moving mass.
