Angle ply laminates have surprisingly good properties. They are much stronger and tougher than the pseudo-isotopic laminates used for aircraft structures. Also, they do not have problems with weak transverse layers. A design protocol for these laminates is presented for manufacture, which is readily carried out using fiber placement.
