Composite laminates are derived for standard angle-and cross-ply configurations with quasi-homogeneous properties, whereby in-plane and out-of-plane stiffness properties are concomitant; thus simplifying the design of laminate configurations possessing highly complex physical coupling responses, collectively referred to as bending-extension coupling. Dimensionless parameters are also developed from which the elements of the extensional, coupling and bending stiffness matrices are readily calculated for any fiber/resin properties.
