Abstract

The modelling and analysis of plates constituted of laminate or sandwich material is a problem of more complexity than that of beams, considered in Chap.  7. Generally, plates are two-dimensional thin structure elements with a plane middle surface. The thickness h is small relatively to the two other dimensions a,b (Fig. 8.1).
