This paper presents an inverse method for the identification of the orthotropic engineering constants of composite materials. The vibration behaviour of a freely suspended test plate is used as information source. The material parameters in a finite element model of the test plate are tuned to match the measured resonance frequencies. The automated procedure is simple, accurate and fast and can be executed with temperature control.
