Abstract : The proposed numerical code which is based on lamination plate theory is capable of determining characteristics of general laminates with cores. The laminate may be subjected to mechanical or hygrothermal loadings. The main features of this program are: calculating stiffness and compliance matrices; calculating effective stresses and moments resulting from temperature or moisture content change; calculating on-axis and off-axis interlaminar strains arising from mechanical or hygrothermal effects, and conducting strength analysis using the Tsai-Hill or maximum strain criterion.
