THERMAL STRESSES AND DEFLECTIONS OF CROSS-PLY LAMINATED PLATES USING REFINED PLATE THEORIES Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Exact analytical solutions of refined plate theories are developed to study the thermal stresses and deflections of cross-ply rectangular plates. The state-space approach in conjunction with the Levy method is used to solve exactly the governing equations of the theories under various boundary conditions. Numerical results of the higher-order theory of Reddy for thermal stresses and deflections are compared with those obtained using the classical and first-order plate theories. © 1991 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
