Abstract

In this paper method of initial functions is used for the study of composite laminated beams. The distribution of bending and shear stresses in composite laminated beams are different from beams of small thickness. The equations of two dimensional elasticity have been used for deriving governing equations. The order of the derived equations depends on the stage at which the series representing the stresses and displacements are truncated. No assumptions regarding physical behavior of beams are made. The beam theories which are based on assumptions are of a practical utility in the case of beams of moderate thickness. However in the case of thick or laminated beams it becomes difficult to obtain useful results using these theories.
