Finite-Element Modeling of Layered, Anisotropic Composite Plates and Shells: a Review of Recent Research Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper reviews finite element papers published in the open literature on the static bending and free vibration of layered, anisotropic composite plates and shells. The paper also contains a literature review of large-deflection bending and large-amplitude free oscillations of layered composite plates and shells. Non-finite element literature is also cited for continuity of the discussion.
