Abstract: The present study deals with the dynamic stability of laminated composite pre-twisted cantilever panels. The effects of various parameters on the principal instability regions are studied using Bolotin's approach and finite element method. The first-order shear deformation theory is used to model the twisted curved panels, considering the effects of transverse shear deformation and rotary inertia. The results on the dynamic stability studies of the laminated composite pre-twisted panels suggest that the onset of instability occurs earlier and the width of dynamic instability regions increase with introduction of twist in the panel. The instability occurs later for square than rectangular twisted panels. The onset of instability occurs later for pre-twisted cylindrical panels than the flat panels due to addition of curvature. However, the spherical pre-twisted panels show small increase of nondimensional excitation frequency.
