Composite structure consists of a system of layers bonded together. The layers can have different mechanical properties and thicknesses. The main task is to predict the behavior of a laminate as a system of layers with given properties. We suggest advanced kinematic scheme for structural calculation and heuristic numerical algorithm of prediction behavior of a multilayer structures with essentially diverse layer’s stiffness. Kinematic scheme can be compared in adequacy with three-dimensional approach of structural calculation of thin multilayer laminate, but is more economical in view of required resource for numerical calculation.
