Abstract: The implementation of composite materials in industries like aerospace, automotive, civil, naval, etc., are emerging continuously because of its combined unique effects. The present article deals with a numerical simulation of the natural frequency effect on the different cantilever structure for various composite materials also estimates its structural response to aerodynamic forces using Fluid-Solid Interaction (FSI) in Ansys Workbench environment. This work is intended to analyze and learn the response of various real-time structural parameters like maximum deformation, maximum stress-induced location and modal parameters like modal frequency, mode shapes on different Cantilevered structures. Structures like wind turbines, airplane wings are critical in structural behavior, which are characteristically using the wind to produce power and lift respectively. The present article deals with an estimation of natural frequencies for the prediction of working lifespan and structural parameters variation throughout the cantilever structures to multi-purpose usage. The entire comparative part of this article is executed with an acceptable simulation of the displacement and principal stress for different composite materials such as Kevlar, Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) by using FSI. Composites Beams are modeled in CATIA and discretized in the Ansys ACP 16.2 tool and Modal analysis of various crosssectional beams are reported, compared and discussed.
