NASA-N92-32588 A New Approach To Fibrous Composite Laminate Strength Prediction

October 12, 2015

NASA-N92-32588I first found this paper as part of a set of NASA conference notes from 1990 and it is the earliest, and probably best, explanation of the biaxial strain failure envelope approach for laminated fiber composites. It is authored by the peerless L. J. Hart-Smith, for those of use who have spent any time in the field of composites he is the most consistent and credible developer of robust analysis methods.

This is one paper that is really worth reading through a couple of times and not just keeping in your reference data set for when you might need it in the future.

Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets

FREE ANALYSIS SPREADSHEETS 3 Over the last 10 years we have developed hundreds of spreadsheet tools to help us with our structural analysis work. We have made these available through the Abbott Aerospace web site and the XL Viking project. We have now brought them into the technical library. They have been updated, improved and the collection has been expanded to cover more analysis methods than ever before.

The XL-Viking Add-In for Excel

XL-Viking 2 We created the XL-Viking Excel add-in to satisfy our own need to make Excel a better engineering tool. XL-Viking shows your Excel Formula in a way that makes sense and brings essential new functionality to Microsoft Excel by providing an additional user interface and easy to use functions.

The Indispensable Tool For Engineers, Mathematicians, Scientists, Accountants and Teaching Professionals!
