The eigenvalue problem of an orthotropy composite blade is formulated by employing the differential quadrature method (DQM). The Euler-Bernoulli beam model is used to characterize the orthotropy composite blade. The differential quadrature method is used to transform the partial differential equations of an orthotropy composite blade into a discrete eigenvalue problem. The Chebyshev-Gauss-Lobatto sample point equation is used to select the sample points. In this study, the effects of the fiber orientation, internal damping, external damping, inclined angle and the rotation speed on the eigen solutions for an orthotropy composite blade are investigated. The effect of the number of sample points on the accuracy of the calculated natural frequencies is also discussed. The integrity and computational efficiency of the DQM in this problem will be demonstrated through a number of case studies. Numerical results indicated that the differential quadrature method is valid and efficient for an orthotropy composite blade formulation.
