Time-dependent interlaminar stresses in elastic and viscoelastic laminated composites subjected to arbitrary combinations of axial extension, bending and/or twisting loads are obtained based on integral constitutive relations and Pipes and Pagano’s displacement field for laminates under a generalized plane deformation state. Numerical results obtained from the present formulation are compared against experimental data and excellent agreement within two percent was obtained between these results. Time-dependent interlaminar stresses for cross-ply and angle-ply laminates subjected to uniaxial extension, bending and twisting are also presented. Appreciable stress relaxation occurred during the loading period resulting in decreased magnitudes of residual stresses. It is seen that the rate of interlaminar shear stress relaxation is greater than the normal one, since the relaxation of shear moduli is larger than that of the normal moduli.
