A literature search found that work on non wood composites had found a similar effect of cross orienting versus parallel laminates. Tsai (11) reported that a 10-degree angle ply laminate had close to twice the tension strength of a 10-degree unidirectionally wound laminate and Kelly (6) reported that balanced cross ply laminates stressed in tension failed by interlaminar shear with a lower rate of decrease in tension strength for angles up to 30 degrees than found for unidirectional laminates.
