Abstract : This report contains the description and instructions for the combined use of composite materials module and magnetic cards for TI-59 programmable calculators. These programs contain the key calculations of the stiffness and strength of unidirectional, and laminated hybrid composites under in-plane loading. This can include sandwich core laminates. With the combination of the module and magnetic cards, instant calculations can be made for practical use. With the use of a printer, these can be immediately outputted and recorded permanently. The formulas used in the cards and equation numbers have been derived in a book entitled, Introduction to Composite Materials, co-authored by S. W. Tsai and H. T. Hahn, published by Technmic Publishing Company, Westport, Connecticut, July 1980. (Author)
