In order to simulate the influence of specimen misalignment, we determine the elastic response of a helical wound composite tube under pure bending using an existing general solution for a wide class of boundary value problems. Theoretical results for several composite materials of engineering interest are presented which illustrate the influence of material properties on the stress field.
