The paper is concerned with failure by plastic flow of the matrix of a fiber-reinforced composite sheet. For unidirectional reinforcement, a completely general state of plane stress in the median plane of the sheet is discussed, but for a two-ply laminate with an arbitrary angle between the two systems of reinforcing fibers only simple tension in any direction to the fibers is investigated.
