Abstract

This paper presents a finite element scheme to analyze the buckling behavior of composite shells subjected to thermal and mechanical loads. Firstly, a kind of multi-layered composite shell element with relative degrees-of-freedom is adopted to model laminated composite shells. Then the corresponding temperature element is developed so that the mechanical analysis and the thermal analysis share a common mesh. Moreover, a new criterion of critical heat flux is proposed in stead of the traditional criterion of critical temperature. Finally, the advantage of the proposed scheme is illustrated by calculating the stable region of thermal-mechanical loads for a honeycomb sandwich composite cylinder.
