Abstract:

Modulus components, compliance components, engineering constants, and their ratios and strengths for bidirectional symmetric laminates have been computed for T3005208 graphite epoxy composites. These material properties are presented in graphic form as functions of either the laminate ply angle pli or the laminate angular rotation gamma. It has been found that the composites exhibit unique properties that do not have a counterpart in conventional materials. The results presented here are useful to designers for making a choice of composites for optimal performance. Author
