[13] used discrete element method to model the interlaminar stress distributions as well as progressive damage propagation in cross-ply laminates under thermal and mechanical loadings, and performed a series of tests of both mechanical and thermal properties of the 0[degrees] plies to validate the method.
Subsequently, the total stress field (crack-free plus perturbation) was recovered for cross-ply [(0/[90.sub.m]).sub.s] laminates.
[13] developed a probabilistic model to predict transverse matrix crack in cross-ply panel and compared it to experimental results.
