This volume contains the description and instructions of magnetic cards for TI-59 programmable calculators. These tapes contain the key calculations of the stiffness and strength of unidirectional and laminated composites. Both in-plane and flexural loadings can be applied. The initial stress and strain due to curing moisture adsorption are also included in the strength calculation. With the aid of the magnetic cards, instant calculations can be made for practical use. The use of cards is also an effective teaching tool. The formulas used in the cards and equation numbers have been derived in a book entitled, Introduction to Composite Materials, co-authored by S. W. Tsai and H. T. Hahn, published by Technomic Publishing Company, Westport, CT, July 1980. This TR a revised edition of the technical report bearing the same number published in April 1979.
