Abstract

The influence of hygrothermal effects on the cylindrical bending of pinned-pinned, clamped-pinned and clamped-clamped support symmetric angle-ply laminated plates subjected to an uniform transverse load is evaluated via classical laminated plate theory and Von Karman's large deflection theory. It is shown that the classical laminated plate theory may not be adequate for the analysis of several composite laminates, even in the small deflection range. The influence of temperature variation, thickness, boundary conditions and the angle of the angle-ply laminates on the accuracy of the analysis is evaluated.
