This paper presents a displacement-based one-dimensional model for the analysis of laminated composite beams, based on the assumption of cross sections rigid in their own planes. The proposed model is mainly focused on the boundary layer analysis. The representation of the axial displacements is given as products between line functions and warping modes of the cross section. Both the sets of unknown functions are determined by means of a variational formulation in order to obtain the ‘best choice’ for the thickness coordinate functions. The minimization of the total potential energy functional is reduced to a sequence of linear problems by means of a gradient technique. Various examples referring to simply supported and cantilever beams, subjected to distributed or concentrated loads, are solved. The results for stress distributions are found to be in excellent agreement with exact plane strain and finite element plane stress solutions even at very low distances from the end sections.

Abstract

This paper presents a displacement-based one-dimensional model for the analysis of laminated composite beams, based on the assumption of cross sections rigid in their own planes. The proposed model is mainly focused on the boundary layer analysis. The representation of the axial displacements is given as products between line functions and warping modes of the cross section. Both the sets of unknown functions are determined by means of a variational formulation in order to obtain the ‘best choice’ for the thickness coordinate functions. The minimization of the total potential energy functional is reduced to a sequence of linear problems by means of a gradient technique. Various examples referring to simply supported and cantilever beams, subjected to distributed or concentrated loads, are solved. The results for stress distributions are found to be in excellent agreement with exact plane strain and finite element plane stress solutions even at very low distances from the end sections.
