This engineering textbook explains the mechanical behavior of a single lamina, develops equations for the mechanical properties of a lamina, extends the macromechanics of a single lamina to a laminate, and walks through methods for analyzing the failure and design of laminated composites.
As shown by the above authors, it is possible to use macromechanics transformation formulae together with specially orthotropic moduli calculated from micromechanics, and obtain the composite modulus, [E.
