Abstract

A generalized first order shear deformation theory for anisotropic multilayered shells is presented. It includes the effects of geometrically nonlinear deformations and general initial curvature. The elasticity equations are expressed in orthogonal curvilinear coordinates lying on the shell’s middle surface and hence this formulation turns out to be particularly suitable for the analysis of structures formed using fiber placement manufacturing techniques. A novel expression for the stiffness matrix is presented in which the relationship between the shell shape and the stiffness coefficients is highlighted.
