General two-dimensional theory of laminated cylindrical shells Academic Article uri icon


  • A general two-dimensional theory of laminated cylindrical shells is presented. The theory accounts for a desired degree of approximation of the displacements through the thickness, thus accounting for any discontinuities in their derivatives at the interface of laminae. Geometric nonlinearity in the sense of the von Karman strains is also included. Navier-type solutions of the linear theory are presented for simply supported boundary conditions. 1990 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., All rights reserved.
