The optimal designs of laminated plates subject to non-uniform temperature
distributions are given for maximum buckling temperature.
The method of
solution involves the finite element method based on Mindlin plate theory
and numerical optimisation.
A computational approach is developed which
involves successive stages of solution for temperature distribution, buckling
temperature and optimal fibre angle.
Three different temperature loadings
are considered and various combinations of simply supported and clamped
boundary conditions are studied.
The effect of plate aspect ratio on the
optimal fibre angle and the maximum buckling temperature is investigated.
In recent years the use of co...
