Laminate Analysis Program (LAP) by Anaglyph
Analysis and Design of Composite Material Laminates
LAP can be used to analyze any type of composite laminate subjected to in-plane loads and moments. Within LAP the flat laminate has no fixed size apart from its thickness, so that the analysis can be applied to any composite component, at a location where loadings or deformations are known. Typically, the software is used in preliminary design for tailoring a stacking sequence, then analyzing the composite component with other methods such as finite elements, and finally optimizing the design by inspecting the laminate behavior layer by layer.
