Influence of edge conditions on the modal characteristics of cross-ply laminated shells Academic Article uri icon


  • The dynamic and static behavior of cross-ply laminated shells are investigated using the third-order shear deformation shell theory of Reddy. The theory is a modification of the Sanders shell theory and accounts for parabolic distribution of the transverse shear strains through the thickness of the shell and does not require shear correction coefficients. The Lévy-type exact solutions for bending, buckling and natural vibration are presented for doubly curved, cylindrical and spherical shells under various boundary conditions. © 1990.
