Abstract

A mixture theory of solids is evaluated for a thermoelastic laminated medium composed of two constituents in alternating layers. In this theory every constituent has its own motion and temperature, but is allowed to interact mechanically and thermally with the other. The resulting system of coupled equations of motion and heat conduction is then used to investigate the response of a laminated plate subjected to mechanical and thermal loadings. In addition, the corresponding thermoelastic effective modulus theory is derived and applied to the laminated plate. Comparisons between the results based on the two theories exhibit the effect of microstructure, which is very pronounced, and the effect of the reinforcement volume on the resulting field in the individual constituents.
