The Refined Zigzag Theory (RZT) belongs to the zigzag class of approximations for the analysis of laminated composite and sandwich structures. This paper presents the derivation of the non-linear equations of motion and consistent boundary conditions of RZT for multilayered plates. Subsequently, the equations are specialized to the linear boundary value problem of bending and the linear eigenvalue problems of free vibrations and buckling. In order to assess the accuracy of RZT, results… CONTINUE READING
