Following is a computer code which I have developed for:

1.      Calculation of laminate properties

2.      Calculation of deformation and twist under load, mechanical or thermal

3.      Failure analysis to determine the sequence of ply failures

Disclaimer: I do not guarantee that this software is error free, especially in the hygrothermal behavior of composites.
