Modeling of composite beams and plates for static and dynamic analysisA rigorous theory and corresponding computational algorithms was developed for a variety of problems regarding the analysis of composite beams and plates. The modeling approach is intended to be applicable to both static and dynamic analysis of generally anisotropic, nonhomogeneous beams and plates. Development of a theory for analysis of the local deformation of plates was the major focus. Some work was performed on global deformation of beams. Because of the strong parallel between beams and plates, the two were treated together as thin bodies, especially in cases where it will clarify the meaning of certain terminology and the motivation behind certain mathematical operations.
