This work presents the free vibration analysis of tapered aircraft structures made of composite and metallic materials, with reference to global and local damage. A refined one-dimensional model, developed in the framework of the Carrera Unified Formulation, has been used to provide a detailed description of structures. Multi-component aeronautical structures have been modeled adopting Lagrange polynomials to evaluate the displacement field over the cross-section. Each component has been described through the component-wise approach, with its own geometrical and mechanical characteristics. The effects of localized damage have been investigated, thanks to the accuracy of the layer-wise models adopted. The model has been assessed by comparing the results with classical FE models. The results show that the present approach provides an accurate solution for the free vibration analyses of complex structures and is able to predict the consequences of a global or local failure of a structural component. The computational efficiency and the accuracy of the model used in this work can be exploited to characterize the dynamic response of complex composite structures considering a large number of damage configurations.
