Title

Buckling of Multilayered Composite Plates under Uniform Temperature Field

Abstract

The buckling behavior of generally layered composite plates subjected to a uniform temperature field is studied. Transverse shear flexibility is accounted for in the analysis using the thermoelastic version of the first order shear deformation theory. Numerical results are presented for thermal buckling problems using a nine noded isoparametric quadrilateral finite element. The influence of boundary conditions, ply orientation, and plate geometries on the critical buckling temperature is examined.
