# Abstract

In this study, an elastic-plastic stress analysis was carried out in woven steel fibers- thermoplastic clamped composite laminates. The stacking sequences were chosen as [0/0]2, [15/-15]2, [30/-30]2 and [45/-45]2 for woven steel fibers – thermoplastic composites plates. The layers were chosen for symmetric and antisymmetric cases. The finite element solution was performed by using the ANSYS software. Solid 186 element was utilized in the solution. Normal stress components at the clamped edges were found to be higher than that at the mid point of the laminated plates. Normal stresses are tensile at the mid point of the clamped edges and compressive at the mid point of the laminated plates. Then, the residual stress components were calculated in the critical points of the composite laminates.
