Boundary Condition Effects on the Parametric Stability of Moderately Thick Laminated Cylindrical Panels
A Reddy type, third order shear deformation theory of shells is applied to the development of two versions of finite strip method (FSM), namely semi-analytical and spline methods, to predict the parametric stability and instability regions in the case of cylindrical moderately thick composite laminated panels. The structures are assumed to be under harmonic in-plane loads in the context of the so-called parametric loading. The linear strain terms are expressed in terms of the Koiter-Sanders theory of shallow shells. In order to demonstrate the capabilities of the developed methods in predicting parametric behavior of the subject structures, some representative results are obtained and compared with those in the literature wherever available.
