Example text

The eightlayer antisymmetric cross-ply plate behaves much like an orthotropic plate. The effect of rotary inertia is negligible in FSDT and therefore not shown in the figure. 28. The bending-stretching coupling due to the presence of B16 and B26 has the effect of lowering the frequencies. The coupling is the maximum for two-layer plates, and it rapidly decreases with increasing number of layers. At f) = 45°, the fundamental frequency of the two-layer plate is about 40 percent lower than that of the eight-layer laminate.

1. INTRODUCTION In section 4, the results of the Navier solutions to the equations of composite plates were discussed for rectangular geometries. However, analytical solutions to these equations cannot be developed when complex geometries, arbitrary boundary conditions, or nonlinearities are involved. Therefore, one must resort to approximate methods of analysis that are capable of solving such problems. The finite element method is a powerful computational technique for the solution of differential and integral equations that arise in various fields of engineering and applied science [5-8].
