Abstract

Thermal buckling of antisymmetric cross-ply laminates having central circular holes subjected to uniform or non-uniform temperature distribution are analysed by the finite element method. To account for the transverse shear deformation, the thermo-elastic Mindlin plate theory is used. Numerical results show that significant reduction of the critical buckling temperature occurs for laminates having a central hole.
