A general two-dimensional shear deformation theory of laminated composite plates is presented. The theory accounts for a desired degree of approximation of the displacements through the laminate thickness. As special cases, the classical, first-order (Reissner-Mindlin) and other shear deformation theories available in the literature can be deduced from the present theory.
