# Abstract

In this study, an elastic-plastic stress analysis has been carried out in a thermoplastic composite cantilever beam. The thermoplastic composite beam was reinforced by steel woven fibers. The beam was loaded uniformly. The orientation angles were chosen as 0°, 15°, 30° and 45°. The finite element models of the beams were developed by using ANSYS software. The obtained results from the nonlinear analyses show that the residual stress component of σx is the highest at the fixed end at the upper and lower edges for the 0° orientation. However, it is the highest on or around the elastic plastic boundaries for the 15°, 30° and 45° orientations. The magnitude of the residual stress component of Τxy is found to be the highest at or around the axis of the beam at the fixed end. 30° orientation produces the highest stress component of Τxy around the axis of the beam. Also, it is found that the magnitude of the residual stress component of σx is higher that that of the Τxy.
