Abstract

In this paper, the Ritz-based solutions are developed for the bending, buckling and vibration behaviors of laminated composite beams with arbitrary lay-ups. A quasi-3D theory, which accounts for a higher-order variation of both the axial and transverse displacements, is used to capture the effects of both shear and normal deformations on the behaviors of composite beams. Numerical results for various boundary conditions are presented and compared with existing ones available in the literature. Besides, the effects of fiber angle, span-to-height ratio, material anisotropy and Poisson’s ratio on the displacements, stresses, natural frequencies and buckling loads of the composite beams are investigated.
