Thermal Properties of Thin Laminated Composite Plates 760450

This paper contains the development of a method for determining the coefficients of thermal expansion for the mid-plane of a thin laminated composite plate. A study is made to show how these coefficients of thermal expansion vary with respect to angle for angle-ply composites. Certain composites can be designed to yeild zero coefficient of thermal expansion in the principal direction.
