Given the material properties of the fibers and the matrix and the volume fraction of fibers, this calculator will estimate the equivalent material properties of the composite lamina in the principal directions.
This calculator assumes
The fibers are homogeneous, isotropic, linear elastic, continuous, regularly spaced, and perfectly aligned.
The matrix is homogeneous, isotropic, and linear elastic.
The lamina is macroscopically homogeneous, macroscopically orthotropic, linear elastic, initially stress-free, void-free, and perfectly bonded.
