Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 78)


In this chapter we investigate the stress state in composite material with locally plane-curved layers. All investigations are carried out for plane-strain state with the use of the relations and assumptions given in Chapter 4. For various local curving form the distribution of the self-balanced stresses on the inter-layer surfaces are studied in detail.

    The solution method presented in section 6.2 was proposed by S.D.Akbarov [ Akbarov, S.D.: On mechanics of composite materials with local curvings in the structure, Prikl Mech 23, No 1(1987), 119–122 (in Russian).]. The study given in section 6.3 was also made by S.D. Akbarov [12.
