On the Measurement of Lamina In-Plane Shear Strength



Many current strength theories for laminated composites depend on knowledge of the basic lamina strengths, namely, the longitudinal, transverse, and in-plane shear strengths. Usually, these are determined from the unidirectional composite. Whether the in-situ lamina strengths, that is, the actual strengths of a lamina in a laminate, are the same as those of the unidirectional composite remains a subject for study.
