Bending of laminated plates with mixed boundary conditions based on higher-order shear deformation theory

Mojgan Yaghoubshahi and Hossein Rajaie

Vol. 4 (2009), No. 10, 1771–1786
Abstract

The bending of laminated plates is considered using higher-order transverse shear deformation theory. The principle of virtual work is used to derive a new set of seven governing equations and corresponding boundary conditions. These equations, combined with eighteen relationships between the resultant stress and displacement components, compose a system of first-order partial differential equations that is solved by the generalized differential quadrature method. Numerical results for laminated plates with a variety of mixed boundary conditions are calculated using the proposed method, and good agreement is found with the corresponding solutions obtained using ANSYS.
