In the present study, the “Effects of Position (or Location) of Non-Centrally Bonded Symmetric Double Doubler Joint in Composite Mindlin Plates or Panels” are theoretically analyzed and are numerically solved in some detail. The “Plate Adherends” and the upper and lower “Doubler Plates” of the “Bonded Joint System” are considered as dissimilar, orthotropic “Mindlin Plates” joined through the dissimilar upper and lower very thin adhesive layers. The transverse and rotary moments of inertia are included in the analysis. The relatively very thin adhesive layers are assumed to be linearly elastic continua with transverse normal and shear stresses. The “damping effects” in the entire “Bonded Joint System” are neglected. The sets of the dynamic “Mindlin Plate” equations of the “Plate Adherends”, the “Double Doubler Plates” and the thin adhesive layers are combined together with the orthotropic stress resultant-displacement expressions in a “special form”. This system of equations, after some further manipulations, is eventually reduced to a set of the “Governing System of the First Order Ordinary Differential Equations” in terms of the “state vectors” of the problem. Hence, the final set of the aforementioned “Systems of Equations” together with the “Continuity Conditions” and the “Boundary Conditions” facilitate the present solution procedure. This is the “Modified Transfer Matrix Method (MTMM) (with Interpolation Polynomials). The present theoretical analysis and the present method of solution are applied to a typical “Non-Centrally Positioned (or Located) Symmetric Double Lap Joint (or Symmetric Double Doubler Joint) System”. The effects of the location (or position) of the “Bonded Joint System” and also of the relatively “Stiff (or “Hard”) and the relatively “Flexible” (or “Soft”) adhesive properties, on the natural frequencies and mode shapes are considered in some detail. The very interesting mode shapes with their dimensionless natural frequencies are presented for various sets of “Boundary Conditions”. From the numerical results obtained, some important conclusions are drawn for the “Bonded Joint System” studied here.
