Abstract

IN THE PRESENT WORK, A LAYERWISE TRIGONOMETRIC SHEAR DEFORMATION THEORY IS USED FOR THE ANALYSIS OF TWO LAYERED (90/0) CROSS PLY LAMINATED SIMPLY SUPPORTED AND FIXED BEAMS SUBJECTED TO SINUSOIDAL LOAD. THE DISPLACEMENT FIELD OF THE PRESENT THEORY CONSISTS OF TRIGONOMETRIC SINE FUNCTION IN TERMS OF THICKNESS COORDINATE TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE EFFECT OF TRANSVERSE SHEAR DEFORMATION. THEORY SATISFIES THE TRANSVERSE SHEAR STRESS FREE BOUNDARY CONDITIONS AT TOP AND BOTTOM SURFACE OF THE BEAM. THIS MODEL SATISFIES THE CONSTITUTIVE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SHEAR STRESSES AND SHEAR STRAINS IN BOTH THE LAYERS AND AXIAL DISPLACEMENT COMPATIBILITY AT THE INTERFACE. VIRTUAL WORK PRINCIPLE IS EMPLOYED TO OBTAIN GOVERNING EQUATIONS AND BOUNDARY CONDITIONS. CLOSED FORM SOLUTION TECHNIQUE HAS THE LIMITATION OF SIMPLY SUPPORTED BOUNDARY CONDITION. IN THE PRESENT WORK GENERAL SOLUTION TECHNIQUE IS DEVELOPED, WHICH CAN BE USED FOR ANY TYPE OF BOUNDARY AND LOADING CONDITIONS. THE TRANSVERSE SHEAR STRESSES ARE OBTAINED USING CONSTITUTIVE RELATION AS WELL FROM THE USE OF EQUILIBRIUM EQUATIONS. THE RESULTS OF DISPLACEMENTS AND STRESSES OBTAINED BY PRESENT THEORY ARE COMPARED WITH THE AVAILABLE RESULTS IN THE LITERATURE.
