Construct your own laminate by dragging the fibres
and matrices onto the constituent boxes, then choose
the number of plies (k), fibre orientations (θ) and fibre
volume fractions (f) before calculating the elastic
constants Ex, Gxy and νxy for different loading angles.

Recommended stacking sequences: i) 0
  ii) 0 / 90
  iii) 0/45/90/45.
       Ply angles must be in the range +90° to -90
