Thermal Stress Analysis of Laminated Composite Plates using Shear Flexible Element
Keywords: Composite shell structures, Shear deformation theory, Composite laminated plates
AbstractUsing degree Centigrade shear flexible QUAD-9 plate element, stresses and deflections in composite laminated plates due to thermal loads analysed. A formulation based on first order shear deformation theory has been employed for the analysis. The effects of various parameters, such as ply-angle, number of layers, thickness and aspect ratios on stresses and deflections are brought out. The present formulation is being extended for studying composite shell structures.
