1 Failure of laminated composites Progressive failure is needed to predict ultimate failure We will limit ourselves to first ply failure

2 Maximum strain or maximum stress failure – in plane loads

3 Example Prequel

4 Tsai-Pagano constants

5 A* matrix and laminate strains

6 45-deg ply

7 Other load combinations

8 Laminate failure envelope Combining the two envelopes Does it agree with previous calculations?

9 If we wanted to check using Hoffman First need to translate strain limits to stress limits (in Gpa) Next calculate stresses in 0-deg ply How does it look? Please check.

10 Terms in Hoffman Criterion Ratios: Criterion adds up to 6.1, large violation. By how much approximately do we need to reduce the stresses? Why the large discerpancy between the two criteria?
