Grahic Jump Location
A scheme of a thin-walled composite beam of open cross-sectional geometry. (a) The cross-sectional deformation components (the out-of-plane warping, ψ(x,η), is not shown); (b) a generic open cross-sectional geometry; (c), (d) symmetric and antisymmetric layups (with respect to the X–Z plane).
Grahic Jump Location
(a) A scheme of a circular thin-walled cross section; (b) a “half-tube” cross section of nonuniform elastic moduli (“symmetric” layup); (c) an open circular cross section of nonuniform elastic moduli (“symmetric layup); (d) a “half-tube” cross section of uniform elastic moduli (“antisymmetric” layup)
Grahic Jump Location
The induced twist (ϕ,x) due to bending (v,xx) and extension (u,x) as functions of the layup angle for a typical graphite/epoxy orthotropic laminae
