Formulation of appropriate governing equations, simpler than the three-dimensional equations of elasticity yet capable of predicting, fairly accurately, all important response parameters such as stress and strain, is attempted in modelling a structural component. Several theoretical models are available in the literature for the analyses of plates. The emergence of fibre-reinforced plastics as an attractive form of structural construction, added a new complexity to the modelling considerations of laminates by requiring the estimation of the interlaminar stresses and strains. In this paper, modelling considerations of laminated composite plates are discussed. The classical laminated plate theory and higher-order shear deformation models are reviewed to bring out their interlaminar stress predictive capabilities, and some new modelling possibilities are indicated.
