  1. Mathematical Construction of a Reissner–Mindlin Plate Theory for Composite Laminates

    03 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Wenbin Yu

    A Reissner–Mindlin theory for composite laminates without invoking ad hoc kinematic assumptions is constructed using the variational-asymptotic method. Instead of assuming a priori the distribution of three-dimensional displacements in terms of two-dimensional plate displacements as what is...
