AbstractA four-node quadrilateral plate element based on the global-local higher order theory (GLHOT) is proposed to study the response of laminated composite plates due to a variation in temperature and moisture concentrations. C0 and C1 continuities are required in the transverse displacement functions as the first and the second derivatives are involved in the computation of the strain components in GLHOT [Int J Mech Sci, 2007; 49:1276-1288]. In this paper, a displacement function satisfying C0 continuity is constructed by using the refined element method, and the discrete Kirchhoff quadrilateral thin plate element DKQ is employed for satisfying the requirement of C1 continuity. The effects of temperature and moisture concentrations on the material properties and the hygrothermal response of multilayered plates are studied, in contrast to most of the previous investigations in which the material properties are assumed to be independent of temperature. Hygrothermal response due to a variation in temperature and moisture concentrations has been studied for different material types sensitive to changing hygrothermal environment conditions. Numerical results suggest that temperature-dependent material properties ought to be used in the analysis of laminated plates subjected to hygrothermal loads. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
