A parametric study of the stress distribution in the composite plates is undertaken to show the effect of different lay-ups. Full 3-D elastic properties are required in the modelling. These properties are calculated using equations taken from the literature and derivation from simple Classical Laminate Plate Theory (CLPT). In previous experimental work, it was shown that tensile failure involved the development of a damage zone at the edge of the hole. In a double-lap joint, it is assumed that uniform stresses are exhibited throughout the plate thickness. Different lay-ups system give different tangential stress distributions and insignificant variation in the radial stress distribution along the hole boundary.
