Dynamic Response of Composite Plate Subjected to Sudden Heat Flux

  •  Salih Akour    


Composite plates’ subjected to sudden surface heating is investigated. Simply supported boundary conditions along the four sides of the plat are considered. The effect of plate thickness and stacking sequence on the maximum deflection that is induced by the thermal heat flux for a graphite-epoxy composite plate is studied using finite element analysis. Symmetric angle ply laminates plate shows least deformation compared the other stacks of the same thickness.
