The stresses and displacements induced in anisotropic plates by short-duration impact line forces are calculated in this paper. The anisotropy is related to the lay-up angles of the fibers of a laminated fiber composite plate. A modification of Mindlin’s theory of crystal plates is used. The plate responses are calculated for various fiber lay-up angles and inclination of the line load to the axes of symmetry. Use is made of the computational method of the fast Fourier transform.
