Dynamic Properties Predictions for Laminated Plates by High Order Theories

The main aim of this study is to predict the elastic and damping properties of composite laminated plates. Some approximate methods for the stress state predictions for laminated plates are presented. For simple uniform bending and transverse loading conditions, this problem has an exact elasticity solution. This paper presents a new stress analysis method for the accurate determination of the detailed stress distributions in laminated plates subjected to cylindrical bending.
