Equivalent layered models for functionally graded plates

Abstract

Functionally graded plates whose material properties vary continuously through the thickness are modelled as exactly equivalent plates composed of up to four isotropic layers. Separate models are derived for analysis using classical plate theory, firstorder and higher-order shear deformation theory. For cases where Poisson’s ratio varies through the… (More)
