Abstract: The influence of nonuniform edge loads on the acoustic response of a functionally graded graphene reinforced composite plate is investigated analytically. The energy method is implemented to calculate the buckling load (Pcr). An analytical method based on Reddy's third-order shear deformation theorem is used to obtain the vibration response, and acoustic response is obtained using Rayleigh Integral. The nature of edge load variation on buckling and vibro-acoustic response is significant. Free vibration mode shape changes with an increase in edge load and consequently affects the resonant amplitude of responses also especially for the plates with a higher aspect ratio. Volume fraction and dispersion pattern of graphene nano-platelets also influences the resonance amplitudes. Plate with FG−GRCC dispersion pattern has improved buckling and vibro-acoustic response behavior. Similarly, change in sound transmission loss level is significant in the stiffness region compared to the damping and mass dominated region. © 2021 Elsevier Masson SAS
