Abstract

The present study deals with both experimental and numerical investigation on buckling effects of laminated composite plates subjected to varying temperature and moisture. A simple laminated plate model is developed for the buckling of composite plates subjected to adverse hygrothermal loading. A computer program based on FEM in MATLAB environment is developed to perform all necessary computations. The woven fiber Glass/Epoxy specimens were hygrothermally conditioned in a humidity cabinet where the
conditions were maintained at temperatures of 300K-425K and relative humidity (RH) ranging from 0-1% for moisture concentrations. All the investigations are made with a symmetric cross-ply laminates. The present study deals with both experimental and numerical investigation on buckling behavior of laminated composite plates subjected to varying temperature and moisture concentration. Quantitative results are presented to show the effects of geometry, material and lamination parameters of woven fiber laminate on
buckling of composite plates for different temperature and moisture concentrations with simply supported boundary conditions with different aspect and side-to-thickness ratios. Experimental results show that there is reduction in buckling loads in KN with the increase in temperature and moisture concentration for laminates with clamped-free-clamped-free boundary conditions
