Progressive matrix cracking in off-axis plies of a general symmetric laminateA generalized shear-lag model is derived to determine the average through-the-thickness stress state present in a layer undergoing transverse matrix cracking, by extending the method of Lee and Daniels (1991) to a general symmetric multilayered system. The model is capable of considering cracking in layers of arbitrary orientation, states of general in-plane applied loading, and laminates with a general symmetric stacking sequence. The model is included in a computer program designed for probabilistic laminate analysis, and the results are compared to those determined with the ply drop-off technique.
