The present study is focused on the analytical modelling of the stationary self-heating caused by the hysteretic behaviour of the polymeric laminated
circular and annular plates hinged on the boundary under axisymmetric transverse cyclic loading. The investigation was based on the complex parameters concept.
The coupled thermoviscoelasticity problem was solved by substitution of the dissipation energy function to the heat transfer equation as a source function.
The self-heating temperature distributions formulas were obtained by solving the heat transfer equation with appropriate thermal boundary conditions using
trigonometric Fourier series. Numerous parametric analyses were presented. It was shown, that omitting the influence of the self-heating effect may results
in the incorrect description of the behaviour of polymeric composites under cyclic loading.
