Composite Structural Mechanics using MATLAB

In this paper MATLAB is adopted as the programming tool used for the analysis of composite materials mechanics. Since the formulation of the mechanical behavior of composite materials involves extensive use of matrices, MATLAB is ideally suited. Morever, graphical interfaces provide an effective means of use. This article considers several topics presented in an elective course offered at the U.S. Naval Academy in composite mechanics, provides the background of these topics, and presents an overview of the MATLAB code that performs the analysis.
