Buckling and vibration of symmetric laminated composite plates with edges elastically restrained
Ahmed S. Ashour

Abstract     [Full Text]
    The finite strip transition matrix technique, a semi analytical method, is employed to obtain the buckling loads and the natural frequencies of symmetric cross-ply laminated composite plates with edges elastically restrained against both translation and rotation. To illustrate the accuracy and the validation of thernmethod several example of cross play laminated composite plates were analyzed. The buckling loads and the frequency parameters are presented and compared with available results in the literature. The convergence study and the excellent agreement with known results show the reliability of the purposed technique.
Key Words
    buckling; vibration; finite strip; elastic restraint; laminated plates.
