The paper concerns the load capacity analysis of thermally loaded multilayered plates and shells. The multilayered body is treated as an equivalent single layer whose kinematics is consistent with first order shear deformation theory. The authors focus on the thermo-elastic stability problem of the thin-walled structures. The equilibrium paths are traced with the use of Riks-Wempner-Ramm algorithm. By making use of the Tsai-Wu...
Within the framework of the nonlinear 6-parameter shell theory with the drilling rotation and asymmetric stress measures, the modifications of Tsai-Wu and Hashin laminate failure initiation criteria are proposed. These improvements enable to perform first ply failure estimations taking into account the non-symmetric stress measures. In order to check the validity of the proposed criteria, finite element analyses are performed with...
Geometrically nonlinear FEM analysis of multilayered composite plates and shells is performed in order to resolve the stability problem of the structures being under the influence of temperature field. The Riks-Wempner-Ramm algorithm with a specially modified multi-choice unloading condition has been implemented in authors’ numerical code. As the representation of multilayered medium the Equivalent Single Layer approach with the...
