The responses of 90 degreesplus or minus 30 degrees sub s, 0 degreesplus or minus 60 degrees sub s, 0 degreesplus or minus 45 degrees sub s, and 90 degreesplus or minus 15 degrees sub s graphite epoxy Courtald HTS Fibers in Fiberite-x904 Laminates subjected to biaxial stress states are presented. These results are obtained using tubular specimens with tsub D 0.015 and Lsub D approximately 1. Additionally included are the results of tests conducted on multidirectional flat specimens, both orthotropic and off-axis. The test results are compared with those predicted theoretically. There is reasonable agreement between analytical and experimental results.
