A family of analytic solutions for the prediction of interlaminar stresses in angle-ply laminates has been developed and is presented in a unified form and as a unique set of solutions. The uniqueness of the formulation is demonstrated for the class of thermomechanical states of deformation for which the solutions are valid. These are shown to be limited to the specific cases wherein only two in-plane stress components and one interlaminar stress components are nonzero. Interlaminar shear stress in the angle-ply laminate subjected to thermomechanical loading conditions of uniaxial extension, uniform temperature change, and anticlastic bending is shown to make up the family of solutions in the unified formulation. Further, these are shown to comprise the complete set of the solutions and the conditions which control the limitations of this family of solutions are articulated.
