Abstract : Solutions are obtained for the bending, vibrations, and buckling of two special cases of laminated anisotropic rectangular plates displying bending-extendional coupling. Three sets of boundary conditions for simply-supported plates are considered. Plates clamped along two opposite sides and simply-supported along the two adjacent sides are also treated. Bending deflections, fundamental vibration frequencies, and buckling loads for certain orientations of angle-ply fiber reinforced composites are shown to be significantly affected by different clamped boundary conditions. Numerical results also show the effects of bending-entensional coupling can be severe for all the boundary conditions considered. (Author-PL)
