6, a and 6, b shows the variation of the first natural frequency of the sandwich beam versus the thickness ratio, with various fiber orientations.
For both Models I and II, it can be indicated that the frequency of the sandwich beam with fiber orientation [theta] = 0[degrees] is relatively high compared with the others cases.
