ABSTRACT
In this study, a finite element based formulation is developed for analyzing the buckling and post-buckling of composite laminates subjected to mechanical and hygrothermal loads using Modified Hyperbolic Shear Deformation Theory (MHSDT). The changes in the critical buckling load are presented for different lamination schemes, thicknesses, material properties and plate aspect ratios. In addition, post buckling analysis is performed for a composite plate subjected to uniform in-plane thermal and moisture induced loadings by using MHSDT. Matlab software has been used for programming the analysis. The results obtained by Matlab codes are in a satisfactory consistence compared to the references. Thus, the developed MHSDT has been validated for buckling and post buckling analysis of laminated plates in hygrothermal environment.
