Multilayer beam analysis including shear and geometric nonlinear effects

Herman Ho Ming Kwan
This thesis presents an analysis and experimental verification for a multilayer beam in bending. The formulation of the theoretical analysis includes the combined effect of shear and geometric nonlinearity. From this formulation, a finite element program (CUBES) is developed. The experimental tests were done on multilayer, corrugated paper beams. Failure deflections and loads are thus obtained. The experimental results are reasonably predicted by the numerical results. Based upon this comparison, a maximum compressive stress is...
