The objective of this program is the determination of the state of stress in laminated, rectangular plates in which the individual plies are composed of fiber- reinforced, polymeric material. The continuity conditions between plies are taken into account by means of an integral formulation of three-dimensional stress function theory. When the number of laminations is very large, a Correspondence Principle has been derived which relates the stress state in the laminated plate to that in a corresponding, homo-geneous, anisotropic plate. For unsymmetrically laminated plates, equations governing the couple bending and stretching deformation have been derived. Author, modified-PL
