A semi-analytical approach for analysis of laminated plates with general boundary conditions under a general distribution of loads is developed. The non-linear equations are solved by the Newton-Kantorovich-Quadrature (NKQ) method which is a combination of well-known Newton-Kantorovich method and the Quadrature method. This method attempts to solve a sequence of linear integral equations. In this paper this method is used to propose a semi-analytical model for buckling of laminated plates. The convergence of the proposed method is investigated and the validation of the method is explored through numerical examples and the results compared with finite element method (FEM). There is a good agreement between the NKQ model and FEM results. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
