Further Results Concerning the Dynamic Response of Shear Deformable Elastic Orthotropic Plates Academic Article uri icon


  • The dynamic response of orthotropic and transversely‐isotropic flat plates to dynamic transverse loading and in‐plane tensile loads constitutes the main topic of this paper. The dynamic loading conditions considered herein include sine, rectangular and triangular pulses while spatially, they are considered as sinusoidally distributed. The results obtained as per a higher‐order plate theory are compared with their first order transverse shear deformation and classical counterparts. In addition, some results concerning the associated free‐vibration and bi‐axial buckling of such plates are presented and comparisons with some of the available results are undertaken.
