In this paper a zeroth-order shear deformation theory has been derived for static and dynamic analysis of laminated composite plates. The responses obtained by the theory for symmetric and antisymmetric laminates are compared with the existing solutions. The comparison firmly establishes that this new shear deformation theory can be used for both thick and thin laminated composite plates with high accuracy.
