Abstract : In a continuing study, three-dimensional elasticity solutions are constructed for rectangular laminates with pinned edges. The lamination geometry treated consists of arbitrary numbers of layers which can be isotropic or orthotropic with material symmetry axes parallel to the plate axes. Several specific example problems are solved, including a sandwich plate, and are compared to the analogous results in classical laminated plate theory. (Author-PL)
