Abstract

This article discusses improved laminate performance relating to both in-plane properties (e.g. first ply failure) and out-of-plane properties (e.g. initial buckling) using double angle-ply laminates (with ±y and ±f ply orientations), which are stiffness matched to standard laminate configurations. A procedure for producing isotropic laminates in bending, is first employed. Off-axis orientation is then applied to these designs to maximise Extension-Shearing coupling; bending isotropy is unaffected by off-axis alignment, hence buckling performance is also unchanged. The performance of competing Extension-Shearing coupled designs are then assessed against a first ply failure strength criterion.
