Abstract

This paper deals about a buckling analysis of composite plates with four different layers orientations and with three, six and twelve layers. Composite plate was modeled by the finite element method. Compression load, shear load and combination of both loads were applied to the composite plate. Then the computational buckling analysis for the all combinations of load was performed for four different orientations of layers and for plates with different numbers of layers. The computed critical buckling loads for the applied loads were compared for all orientations of layers. From the results the inappropriate orientations of layers for different loads were obtained. The critical buckling load increased almost ten times for the composite plates with two times higher thickness.
