A study was\r\nconducted on the thermal post-buckling of shape memory alloy\r\ncomposite plates subjected to the non-uniform tent-like temperature\r\nfield. The shape memory alloy wires were embedded within the\r\nlaminated composite plates to add recovery stress to the plates. The\r\nnon-linear finite element model that considered the recovery stress of\r\nthe shape memory alloy and temperature dependent properties of the\r\nshape memory alloy and composite matrix along with its source\r\ncodes were developed. It was found that the post-buckling paths of\r\nthe shape memory alloy composite plates subjected to various tentlike\r\ntemperature fields were stable within the studied temperature\r\nrange. The addition of shape memory alloy wires to the composite\r\nplates was found to significantly improve the post-buckling behavior\r\nof laminated composite plates under non-uniform temperature\r\ndistribution.","references":"[1] J.
