Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Engineering Mechanics
Abstract: A strength of materials approach from the ply level is used to derive expressions for stresses in statically determinate open section composite beams subjected to constant shear loading. Torsion is considered, but limited to 'small' angles of twist. Full coupling effects are considered. Constrained warping and shear deflections are not considered.
