Abstract

The cylindrical bending of a cross-ply laminated plate subjected to a uniform transverse load is evaluated via classical laminated plate theory and Von Karman's large deflection theory, respectively. It is shown that for the analysis of several cross-ply composite laminates, the common concept which expects that the linear analysis will provide a more accurate result for the plate with smaller deflection is not always correct, and the classical laminated plate theory may be inadequate even in the range of small deflection. Finally, the influence of the amplitude of deflection, temperature variation, boundary conditions, span-to-thickness ratio and stacking sequence on the accuracy of the linear and nonlinear analysis is evaluated.
