Abstract

In the present paper we examine optimal laminate configurations to maximize combined buckling loads for symmetrically laminated plates with bending-twisting coupling. Various loading cases are discussed in this paper, that is, compressive, shear, and the combined loads. First, the buckling characteristics under combined loading are clarified with use of the lamination parameters. Next, optimal laminate configurations to maximize the combined buckling loads are obtained using a mathematical programming method where lamination parameters are adopted as intermediate design variables.
