On the Generalization of Displacement-Based Laminate Theories Academic Article uri icon


  • A review and generalization of the displacement-based two-dimensional plate theories is presented. The classical and shear deformation singlelayer theories up to the third-order are presented in a single theory through tracers. The layerwise laminate theory developed by the author is reviewed. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the accuracy of the layerwise theory by comparison with the analytical solution of the 3D elasticity theory.
