Buckling of Laminated Composite Rectangular Plates

The present study estimates the critical/buckling loads of laminated composite rectangular plates under in-plane uniaxial and biaxial loadings. The formulation is based on the first-order shear deformation theory and von-Karman-type nonlinearity. The Chebyshev series is used for spatial discretisation and quadratic extrapolation is used for linearization. An incremental iterative approach is used for estimation of the critical load. Different combinations of simply supported, clamped and free boundary conditions are considered. The effects of plate aspect ratio, lamination scheme, number of layers and material properties on the critical loads are studied.
