|Fiber Reinforced Composite Lamina|
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 derivation of the formulas can be found in the determination of material constants of a lamina section.
Volume fraction of the matrix Vm:
Young's modulus along the fiber direction E1:
Young's modulus transverse to the fiber direction E2:
Shear modulus G12:
Major Poisson's ratio 12:
