Abstract

A lamina has been defined as a thin single layer of composite material. A lamina or ply is a typical sheet of composite materials, which is generally of a thickness of the order 1 mm. A laminate is constructed by stacking a number of laminae in the direction of the lamina thickness. The layers are usually bonded together with the same matrix material as in the single lamina.
