Postbuckling of laminated flat and curved panels under combined thermal and mechanical loadingsThe static postbuckling of simply-supported, symmetrically laminated composite and single-layered flat and doubly-curved shallow panels, subjected to both a stationary non-uniform temperature field and a system of mechanical loadings is investigated. A number of non-classical effects related to the transverse shear flexibility of constituent materials, the unavoidable initial geometric imperfections and the character of tangential boundary conditions are considered and pertinent conclusions about their role on the postbuckling response are emphasized. Throughout the paper the results based upon a higher-order theory are compared with their first order shear deformable and classical counterparts, and conclusions related to their range of applicability are outlined.
