On Cyclical Hygrothermal Fields in Laminated Plates

Abstract : This article focuses on the calculation of transient and cyclical hygrothermal fields in laminated composite plates. Water diffusion is simulated by employing Fick’s law, while thermal fields are assumed to be uniform: temperature and water concentration are coupled through the coefficient of hygroscopic diffusivity, which follows a classical Arrhenius law. Relative humidity and temperature at the plate boundary vary in a transient/cyclic way, reproducing real complex environmental conditions. Analytical solutions of the cyclical hygrothermal fields in laminated plates can be employed as benchmark for numerical calculations and for evaluating the induced hygrothermal stress, therefore, for structural, design and optimisation purposes.
