A summary of Classical Lamination Theory

A laminate is an organized stack of uni-directional composite plies (uni-directional meaning the plies have a single fiber direction rather than a weave pattern). The t stands for "truncate,” the s for "symmetrical” (implying the listed sequences should be mirrored across the laminate’s midplane) and the 2 outside of the parenthesis means that sequence is repeated twice. The fiber angles are measured from a general coordinate system defined in figure 2. (Note that the positive z axis points down.)
