The buckling loads of laminated plates are predicted using a new theory which takes into account transverse shearing ettects. This new theory assumes trigonometric terms through-the-thickness in the displacements to take into account transverse shearing effects in thick plates. Buckling loads predicted by the new theory and by traditional theories are compared for isotropic and laminated plates. The effect of ply orientation on the buckling loads predicted by each theory is demonstrated. (MM).
