Paper Title:
A Semi-Energy Finite Strip Method for Post-Buckling Analysis of Relatively Thick Anti-Symmetric Cross-Ply Laminates
  Abstract

In the current paper, a new semi-energy finite strip method is developed based on the concept of first order shear deformation theory (FSDT) in order to attempt the post-buckling solution for relatively thick composite plates subjected to uniform end-shortening. The main advantage of the semi-energy finite strip method (FSM) is that it is based on the closed form solution of von Karman’s compatibility equation in order to derive the analytical shape functions for the in-plane displacements fields. The developed finite strip method is applied to analyze the post buckling behavior of a relatively thick anti-symmetric cross-ply composite plate with clamped out-of-plane boundary conditions at its loaded ends. The results are discussed in detail and compared with those obtained from finite element method (FEM) of analysis. The study of the results has provided confidence in the validity and capability of the developed finite strip in handling post-buckling problem of relatively thick laminated plates.
