Abstract – The buckling behavior of laminated plates and shells subjected to uniform in plane edge loading is studied using ANSYS. Laminated square plates subjected to uniaxial and biaxial compression loading is analysed for various modular ratio, mixed boundary conditions, span-to-thickness ratios have been analysed for buckling. The results are obtained using ANSYS with SHELL 181 element. The results obtained are compared with those obtained using FSDT and HSDT techniques from published papers and are in good agreement. Buckling analysis of laminated shells was also analysed. The vibration response of laminated plates and cylindrical shells was also performed using ANSYS for various aspect ratios, boundary conditions, lamination schemes, span-to-thickness ratios, skew angles etc. The results obtained are compared with those obtained from various published papers and are in good agreement.
