Abstract: This paper presents the numerical investigation results carried out on vibro-acoustic behavior of functionally graded carbon nanotube reinforced polymer nanocomposite plate using combined finite element method and Rayleigh integral. Parameter studies are carried out to analyze the in?uence of nature of functional grading, loading of carbon nanotube, and structural boundary conditions on free and forced vibration and sound radiation characteristics in detail. It is found that natural frequencies are significantly in?uenced by the nature of functional grading while the mode shapes are insensitive. The resonant amplitude of vibration and acoustic response are significantly in?uenced with the nature of different functional grading. This re?ects in the bandwise calculation of sound power also which recommends the carbon nanotube functional grading with X distribution along the thickness direction for lower frequency level. Similar variation in vibro-acoustic response has been observed with increase in the carbon nanotube loading also. � 2016, IMechE 2016.
