Nonuniform warping torsion of orthotropic composite beams
- 73 Downloads
The proposed work deals with the behaviour of orthotropic composite beams subjected to torsion, taking into consideration the effects due to nonuniform warping. We start from a one-dimensional approach based on the integral parameter method and consider any complex cross-sectional shape. The basic relations obtained lead to numerical computation based on the finite element method. As a special case of the general results obtained, an example of a sandwich beam is worked out in detail.
