6.4 Laminate Stiffness matrix

A, B, D, H are the membrane, bending-extension, bending, and intralaminar stiffness matrices of the laminate. See §6.14 in the textbook.

You can download these matrices with the ToExcel button, then use them as data for a finite element analysis (FEA) program such as Abaqus$^{\rm TM}$, etc. More efficiently, you could link Abaqus$^{\rm TM}$, ANSYS$^{\rm R}$, and even MATLAB$^{\rm R}$ to get the data from CADEC directly. This is done via the API descibed in http://forum.cadec-online.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=235. or API.
