Analytical Study of Buckling of Hybrid Multilayer Plates
Thermal buckling behavior of hybrid multilayer plates was investigated in this paper. Different theories of plates taking into account or neglect the transverse shear are presented and the obtained results by these theories are compared. Nonlinear higher-order strain-displacement relations were considered. Using the principle of potential energy, the critical buckling temperatures are determined. Finally, a parametric study of the influence of various parameters such as: aspect ratios: b/a and a/h, thickness of metal, fiber angle and stacking sequence on the critical buckling temperature is shown and discussed. Numerical results indicate that the addition of metal to a composite material and the consideration of the transverse shear deformation have a significant effect on the thermal buckling behavior of simply supported hybrid multilayer plates.
