Abstract Compared to the classical Rayleigh-Ritz method and other analytical solutions, finite element (FE) method is more efficient and capable in calculating the deformations and stress states of partial-interaction composite beams, as well as manipulating the material and geometrical parameters for better engineering designs. Stiffness matrix of composite beams considering the interlayer slips is derived based on the kinematic assumptions of the Timoshenko’s beam theory by taking into… CONTINUE READING
