The use of composite materials in engineering structures continues to increase dramatically, and there have been equally significant advances in modeling for general and composite materials and structures in particular. To reflect these developments, renowned author, educator, and researcher J.N. Reddy created an enhanced second edition of his standard-setting Mechanics of Laminated Composite Plates and Shells: Theory and Analysis. This edition includes: A chapter dedicated to the theory and analysis of laminated shells Discussions addressing smart structures and functionally graded materials Reorganization of chapters that improves and clarifies presentation Additional exercises and examples A timelessly valuable resource, this book approaches the subject primarily in terms of the finite element method. It provides incomparably full, self-contained coverage of the theories, analytical solutions, and linear and nonlinear finite element models of plate and shell laminated composite structures.

Laminated Composite Plates and Shells presents a systematic and comprehensive coverage of the three-dimensional modelling of these structures. It uses the state space approach to provide novel tools for accurate three-dimensional analyses of thin and thick structural components composed of laminated composite materials. In contrast to the traditional treatment of laminated materials, the state space method guarantees a continuous interfacial stress field across material boundaries. Other unique features of the analysis include the non-dependency of a problem's degrees of freedom on the number of material layers of a laminate. Apart from the introductions to composite materials, three-dimensional elasticity and the concept of state space equations presented in the first three chapters, the book reviews available analytical and numerical three-dimensional state space solutions for bending, vibration and buckling of laminated composite plates and shells of various shapes. The applications of the state space method also include the analyses of piezoelectric laminates and interfacial stresses near free edges. The book presents numerous tables and graphics that show accurate three-dimensional solutions of laminated structural components. Many of the numerical results presented in the book are important in their own right and also as test problems for validating new numerical methods. Laminated Composite Plates and Shells will be of benefit to all materials and structural engineers looking to understand the detailed behaviour of these important materials. It will also interest academic scientists researching that behaviour and engineers from more specialised fields such as aerospace which are becoming increasingly dependent on composites.

This book develops a uniform accurate method which is capable of dealing with vibrations of laminated beams, plates and shells with arbitrary boundary conditions including classical boundaries, elastic supports and their combinations. It also provides numerous solutions for various configurations including various boundary conditions, laminated schemes, geometry and material parameters, which fill certain gaps in this area of reach and may serve as benchmark solutions for the readers. For each case, corresponding fundamental equations in the framework of classical and shear deformation theory are developed. Following the fundamental equations, numerous free vibration results are presented for various configurations including different boundary conditions, laminated sequences and geometry and material properties. The proposed method and corresponding formulations can be readily extended to static analysis.

As an expert in structure and stress analysis, the author has written extensively on functionally graded materials (FGMs), nonlinear vibration and dynamic response of functionally graded material plates in thermal environments, buckling and postbuckling analysis of single-walled carbon nanotubes in thermal environments. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the author's works which include significant contributions to the postbuckling behavior of plates and shells under different loading and environmental conditions. This book comprises eight chapters. Each chapter contains adequate introductory material so that an engineering graduate who is familiar with basic understanding of plates and shells will be able to follow it. Chapter 1 introduces higher order shear deformation plate theory and the derivation of the nonlinear equations of shear deformable plates in the von Kármán sense.Chapter 2, covers the postbuckling behavior of thin plates due to in-plane compressive loads or temperature variation.Chapter 3 presents analytical solutions of moderately thick isotropic plates without or resting on elastic foundations.Chapter 4 furnishes a detailed treatment of the postbuckling problems of shear deformable laminated plates subjected to thermal, electrical, and mechanical loads.Chapter 5 put forward a concepts of boundary layer theory for shell buckling and isotropic cylindrical shells.Chapter 6 extends this novel theory to the cases of anisotropic laminated cylindrical thin shells.Chapter 7 presents postbuckling analysis of shear deformable laminated cylindrical shells under the framework of boundary layer theory.Chapter 8 deals with postbuckling behavior of laminated cylindrical panels under various loading conditions.
