Elastic and plastic interlaminar shear deformation in a laminated fibrous composite is studied by means of a finite element method. A composite element, constructed of orthotropic membranes separated by shear-resisting media, is developed and utilized. The effect of interlaminar shear deformation at the free edges of solid laminates and laminates containing a cutout is presented.
