On the Behavior of Plates Laminated of Bimodulus Composite Materials Conference Paper uri icon


  • An excet and finiteelement analysis is used to predict the static bending and natural vibration response of rectangular plates laminated of composite material having different elastic properties depending upon whether the fiberdirection strains are tensile or compressive. The analysis is based on a theory that accounts for anisotropy, bendingstretching coupling, thickness shear deformation, and both coupling inertia und rotatory inertia. The finiteelement results are found to agree very closely with the exact closedform solutions in the case of a crossply rectangular plate having simply supported edges and subjected to sinusoidally distributed normalpressure loading or temperature loading.
