Justification of the Bending-Gradient Plate Model Through Asymptotic Expansions

Abstract

In a recent work, a new plate theory for thick plates was suggested where the static unknowns are those of the Kirchhoff-Love theory, to which six components are added representing the gradient of the bending moment [1]. This theory, called the Bending-Gradient theory, is the extension to multilayered plates of the Reissner-Mindlin theory which appears as a special case when the plate is homogeneous. This theory was derived following the ideas from Reissner [2] without assuming a homogeneous plate. However, it is also possible to give a justification through asymptotic expansions. In the present paper, the latter are applied one order higher than the leading order to a laminated plate following monoclinic symmetry. Using variational arguments, it is possible to derive the Bending-Gradient theory. This could explain the convergence when the thickness is small of the Bending-Gradient theory to the exact solution illustrated in [3]. However, the question of the edge-effects and boundary conditions remains open.
