This tool calculates the individual ply thickness in a laminate, given: the areal weight of the reinforcement fibres (in g/m2); the density of those fibres (in g/cm3); and the weight fraction and density of the matrix resin. (A second calculator is provided to convert volume fraction of fibres to weight fraction of resin – this uses the same weight and density data entered into the ply-thickness calculator.) The tool does not take into consideration any content of voids in the ply/laminate.
