Abstract

The anisotropic plane elasticity solution of the stresses throughout a thin, rectangular, laminated composite plate subjected to self-equilibrating cubically distributed shear stress at the two ends of the plate is obtained. The plate is assumed to be a symmetric laminate and hygrothermal effects are not considered. The characteristic decay length under the shear loading is estimated for different cases of isotropic, orthotropic, and anisotropic plate. The work is intended to be presented as an example during a lecture or to be published in new textbook demonstrating the numerical method.
