Flexure of a rigidly clamped orthotropic sandwich plate strip – An elasticity solution using superposition method
R.A. Menon,
Published in SAGE Publications Ltd
A simple two-dimensional elasticity solution is presented here for flexure of an infinite sandwich strip with rigidly clamped ends; it is based on the superposition of a strong form solution for a simply supported strip under transverse loading and a Ritz solution for end-loading. Results useful for future comparisons are presented in tabular form. On the basis of these results, the accuracy of classical plate theory and first-order shear deformation theory is critically examined. Finally, the difference between rigidly clamped end conditions and a softer version of clamped conditions is highlighted with reference to far-field response. © The Author(s) 2021.
