Abstract : This report is an updated and expanded version of AFWAL-TR-81-4116. It contains descriptions and step-by-step instructions for the simple, combined use of magnetic cards with the composite materials module, designed for use in TI-59 programmable calculators. Users do not have to be familiar with TI-59 programming. These programs contain the key calculations of the stiffness and strength of unidirectional and symmetrially laminated composites, including sandwich core laminates. Both in-plane and flexural loadings can be applied, giving in-plane and flexural response. Instant calculations can be made for practical use. With the use of a printer, the results can be immediately and permanently recorded. The equation numbers in this report are from Introduction to Composite Materials by Tsai and Hahn, published by Technomic Publishing Company, Westport, Connecticut, July 1980. (Author)
