Abstract

A mixed variational formulation is employed to develop four, eight and nine noded quadrilateral elements for the finite element analysis of composite laminated plates in bending. Numerous parametric studies detail the effects of varying length-to-thickness ratios, aspect ratios, lamination angles, degree of anisotropy, etc., to observe displacements, stresses and moments arising in composite laminated plates under different types of loading with various boundary conditions.
