Paper Title:
Application of Generalized Differential Quadrature Method to the Bending of Thick Laminated Plates with Various Boundary Conditions
  Abstract

Bending analysis of thick laminated rectangular plates with various boundary conditions is presented using Generalized Differential Quadrature (GDQ) method. Based on the Reissner first order shear deformation theory, the governing equations include a system of eight first order partial differential equations in terms of unknown displacements, forces and moments. Presence of all plate variables in the governing equations provide a simple procedure to satisfy different boundary condition during application of GDQ method to obtain accurate results with relatively small number of grid points even for plates with free edges .Illustrative examples including various combinations of clamped, simply supported and free boundary condition are given to demonstrate the accuracy and convergence of the presented GDQ technique. Results are compared with other analytical and finite element predictions and show reasonably good agreement.
