The calculator computes the laminate inplane stiffness in terms of effective Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, and shear modulus. Note that this representation is strictly correct only for orthotropic laminates. An orthotropic laminate requires that the number of plus theta angle plies equals the number of minus theta angle plies

Enter the layer material properties as a list {Ex, Ey, Gxy, nuxy}:

For a thermal expansion plot, you will also need the layer expansion coefficients {alpha x, alpha y}

Pick the quantity to plot
