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. The convergence of the proposed method is compared with other semi-Analytical methods. The validation of the method is explored through various numerical examples and the results compared with finite element method (FEM) and experimental tests. Good agreement between the NKQ model, FEM and experimental results are shown to validate the model.
