Abstract

In this study, buckling, post-buckling and progressive failure of composite laminated plates have been investigated numerically and experimentally. Buckling load, load-displacement relations for post buckling and maximum out-of-plane displacements of the plates are determined. Furthermore, the numerical results are compared with experimental findings for two different laminates made of woven fabric and uni-directional tapes. The comparisons show that there is a good agreement between numerical and experimental results obtained for buckling load and post-budding behavior especially for the laminates with uni-directional tapes.
