A Theory of Laminated Beams Subjected to Axial, Bending and Shear Load

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

A theory of laminated beams subjected to axial, bending and shear loads is presented in this paper. The kinematical model employed to describe the laminated beam displacement field is layer-wise in nature. Moreover it is such that the equilibrium equations and the continuity of the stress components at plies interfaces are satisfied. By using the whole set of interface continuity conditions in conjunction with the traction –free conditions on the beam top and bottom surfaces the layer-wise kinematical quantities are written in terms of the mechanical primary variables pertaining to one layer only, which are then expressed in terms of the laminated generalized displacements. The solution for cantilever beam is last reported to show the soundness of the proposed model.
