ANALYSIS OF COMPOSITE PLATE

PROBLEM:
Analysis of simply supported [0/45/-
45/90/90/45/-45/0] laminated composite square plate. Consider a 8
layer simply supported laminated square plate with the following
stacking sequences [0/45/-45/90/90/45/-45/0]s and a side length of
0.2 m with a thickness of 1 mm. The material is considered to be
T300/934 CFRP with the mechanical properties as: E1 = 120 G Pa, E2
=7.9 G Pa =E3 , G12 = 5.5 G Pa =G23=G13 , ρ = 1580 kg/m3 ,
v12=0.33=v13=v23.

GEOMENTRY:

The laminate has 8 layers .these 8 layers have orientation


[0/45/-45/90/90/45/-45/0]. Each layer has 1 mm thickness. the
laminate is square laminate with 0.2*0.2 m measurements. the
laminate has unidirectional fibers .the young’s modulus value in x
direction is greater than the other two directions .
MATERIAL PROPERTIES:

The material used is Carbon Fiber Prepreg(T300/934 CFRP)

STEPS FOR THE PROJECT:

Step 1 :preference>structural>ok

Step2:pre-processor>element type>shell>8node281>ok

Step 3: pre-processor>material property> structural>orthotropic


materials

Enter the given values

Step4: pre-processor>section>layup

Create the shell sections with the given data.

Step5: pre-processor>modelling >

Create a square plate with 0.2*0.2 m

Step5:pre-processor>meshing>mesh tool
meshing(global) is done .no of elements is 40 .

step6: pre-processor>loads>define loads>on keypoints

select the two lines ab and cd and give all degrees of freedom as zero
since it is simply supported .the two ends are fixed.

Again define loads>force and moments>on nodes

Select the node and give Fy=1000 N.

Step7: solution>solve>currentLS

Thus the solution is done.

Step8:RESULTS

General post processor>deformed or contour plot

Finally after performing analysis results are evaluated.

ELEMENT TYPE: 8node281 element


the element has eight nodes with six degrees of freedom at each
node: translations in the x, y, and z axes, and rotations about the x,y
y, and z-axes. The following figure shows the geometry, node
locations, and the element coordinate system for this element. The
element is defined by shell section information and by eight nodes (I,
J, K, L, M, N, O and P).
Plot section of laminate:

Meshing:(global mesh)Quadrilateral cell shape:This cell shape is a


basic 4 sided one as shown in the figure. It is most common in
structured grids.Number of element division is 40.
Boundary conditions:on side AB and CD ,all dof is zero since it is
simply supported.the two ends are fixed.

Force applied on the node:the applied force is=-1000 N.the force is


applied towards the Fy direction.
