The dynamic equations of orthotropic laminated plates are derived from the concepts of Timoshenko's beam theory to include the effects of transverse shear and rotatory inertia. The propagation of flexural waves is discussed. The transient response of a rectangular plate to a normal impact is...
A three-dimensional equilibrium finite element analysis is used to obtain approximate stress solutions for some finite symmetric laminates under inplane loading. The analysis is based on a comple mentary energy formulation. Obtained stress solutions at the center section of the laminate are...
Results of an experimental program systematically evaluating the deformation and fracture of steel wire reinforced epoxy composite systems are presented. The program involved mechanical testing in the strain rate range 10 -5 to 10 3 /sec and impact testing of composite specimens using massive...
A mechanical theory is developed for the propagation of steady waves in laminated media. This analysis treats wave propagation parallel and perpendicular to the laminate plates. It predicts the response of the composite from a knowledge of the component vol ume fractions and mechanical equation...
Laminated, filament-reinforced epoxy beam specimens were fa tigued in vibratory flexure. The complex modulus of the specimens was measured periodically as fatigue crack damage accumulated. Changes in the real and imaginary parts of the modulus correlated with the amount of crack damage. The...
Applying Vlasov-Ambartsumyan shell theory to anisotropic and laminated cylinders, equations are developed for calculating the stresses in a composite tube under combined axial load, torsion, and internal pressure. Comparison to results obtained from exact elasticity theory shows that the shell...
