In this chapter, the derivation of analytic formulation of bending deflection has been done using the theory of classical laminate plate. The method of Navier and Levy solutions are used in the calculation. The composite laminate plate is exposed to out-off plane temperatures and combined loading. The temperature gradient of thermal shock is varied between 60C∘ and −15C∘. The combined loading are the bending moment (Mo) in the y-direction and in-plane force (Nxx) in the x-direction. The in-plane force (Nxx) has a great effect on the bending deflection value within a 95.842%, but the bending moment (Mo) has a small effect on the bending deflection value in the rate of 4.101%. The results are compared and verified for central normal deflection.
