Effect of Lamination Scheme on Buckling Load for Laminated Composite Decks Plates
Received Date: March 27, 2019; Published Date: May 02, 2019
New numerical results are generated for in – plane compressive biaxial buckling which serve to quantify the effects of lamination scheme on buckling loading. The results indicate that the symmetric laminate is stiffer than the anti – symmetric one. This phenomenon is caused by coupling between bending and stretching which lowers the buckling loads of symmetric laminate.
