Mechanical Behavior of Laminated Composite Curved Tubes
The stress analysis on thick laminated composite curved tubes subjected to pure bending moment is performed by proposing a high-order displacement-based method. The most general displacement field of elasticity for thick laminated composite curved tubes is developed by employing a displacement approach of toroidal elasticity and a layerwise method. The accuracy of the proposed method is verified by comparing the numerical results obtained using the proposed method with finite element method (FEM).
