Abstract: The instability behaviour of a woven fibre composite plate in respect of its free vibration and buckling analysis has been presented in this paper. The woven fibre composite plate has been prepared by hand layup with bidirectional woven glass fibres in epoxy matrix. The mechanical properties of the woven fibre composite plate have been characterised experimentally and a finite element investigation has been done for the instability analysis. Modal response of the plate and the critical buckling load leading to instability of the plate to varying parameters are studied and numerical results have been presented.
