Investigations of Bending Singularity Orders in a V-notched Composite Laminate Plate Based on the Ressiner-Mindlin Theory
Department of Mechanical Engineering, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan 70101, Taiwan
In this paper, the bending singularity at the apex of a V-notched composite laminate plate is investigated. The anisotropy of the laminate is modeled by the Stroh formalism. Based on the eigenfunction expansion method, the bending singularity orders can be determined by solving an eigenvalue problem numerically. The singularity orders depend on the plate angle, material orientation, material anisotropy and the laminate stacking sequence. The comparison cases show that the material orientation should avoid in order to reduce the bending singularity. The layers near the free surfaces have more significant effects on the singularity order. The findings presented in this paper are helpful in the design of the composite laminate with V-notch.
