Classical Laminate Theory of Composites

Composites in engineering components are often found in a layered structure. Laminates can be made, for instance, by stacking preimpregnated cloths (prepregs), e.g. for making panels, or by filament winding, e.g. for pipes. Suitable techniques are required to fabricate these laminates in each case. An important geometric feature of these laminates is that their dimensions the thickness direction is usually much smaller than those in the plane of the laminates. This provides an opportunity for simplification of the theory which describes the behaviour of these laminates. As in any other studies of engineering, simplifications come normally with approximations.
