In this study the problem of the implications played by the sliding interlaminar imperfections on the static and dynamic non-linear behavior of laminated composite flat panels subjected to thermomechanical loadings is addressed. Towards the end of approaching this problem, a recently developed geometrically non-linear theory of anisotropic composite flat panels featuring interlaminar bonding imperfections is used. A number of results related with the influence of interfacial bonding imperfections on the thermomechanical postbuckling and frequency-load-temperature interaction are supplied and pertinent conclusions are outlined.
