The aim of this paper is to study the auxetic and non-auxetic behavior of a layered plate in context of coupled thermoelasticity. For this problem, temperature variation and thermal stresses are analyzed in a state of plane stress. Results are obtained for a layered plate subjected to a sudden uniform normal pressure and for obtained results graphs are depicted.


Key words: Auxetic behavior, uniform normal pressure, Poisson’s ratio, plane stress.
