The objective of this chapter is to evaluate the component-laminate load-carrying capacity, i.e., to calculate the loads that cause the failure of the individual layers and the component-laminate as a whole in four-bar mechanism. The component-laminate load-carrying capacity is evaluated using the Tsai-Wu-Hahn failure criterion for various layups. The reserve factor of each ply in the component-laminate is calculated by using the maximum resultant force and the maximum resultant moment occurring over an entire period of rotation at the joints of the mechanism. The nonlinear through-the-thickness stress and strain distributions are reported at different points. The Tsai-Wu-Hahn failure criterion is used to predict the first-ply-failure and the mechanism as a whole. © 2021, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
