In this paper, Cylindrical bending of composite plates using refined plate theory is presented. The theory accounts for the parabolic variation of shear strains through the thickness of plate. Hence does not require shear correction factor. The displacement field of the theory contains two variables same as that of first order shear deformation theory. Governing equations and boundary conditions are derived from the principle of virtual work. Numerical results are obtained for cylindrical bending of simply supported composite plate to investigate effects of modular ratios.
