Uniform stress resultants inside two nonelliptical inhomogeneities in isotropic laminated plates

Xu Wang, Liang Chen and Peter Schiavone

Vol. 13 (2018), No. 4, 531–541

We use complex variable methods to establish two sets of specific conditions which ensure the existence of uniform and hydrostatic internal membrane stress resultants and bending moments inside two through-thickness nonelliptical elastic inhomogeneities embedded in an infinite isotropic laminated Kirchhoff plate subjected to uniform remote membrane stress resultants and bending moments. These conditions can be interpreted as restrictions on the remote membrane stress resultants and bending moments for the given material and geometric parameters. We show that when these conditions are met, explicit expressions are available for the uniform stress resultants inside the two inhomogeneities and the constant hoop stress resultants on the matrix side along the two interfaces.
