|Abstract:||Investigations on the stability characteristics of rectangular angle ply plates subjected to various types of inplane loading are reported here. Variationally consistent governing equations and boundary conditions are derived for this purpose. The possibility of bifurcation instability in angle ply plates subjected to various types of inplane loading is examined. Employing a four node rectangular finite element having ten degrees of freedom per node solves the governing equations. The prediction accuracy of the element is demonstrated through series of numerical examples. The effect of layup, aspect ratio, type of loading (uniaxial/biaxial/positive and negative shear/tension-compression/compressiontension/inplane edge moment) and boundary conditions are studied in detail. Some interesting observations on the stability behaviour of angle ply plates are made.|
