Thermal effects on the response of cross-ply laminated shallow shells Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The static response of cross-ply laminated shallow shells subjected to thermal loadings is investigated. An exact analytical solution using the state space approach is presented in conjunction with the Lévy method, for doubly curved, cylindrical and spherical shells under various boundary conditions. Numerical results of the higher-order theory of Reddy and Liu (1985, 1987) for center deflection of cross-ply laminated shallow shells are compared with those obtained using classical and first-order shell theories. © 1991.
