Theoretical results are presented showing that the degradation in Poisson's ratio and shear modulus are much more significant than the degradation in axial modulus for cross-ply laminates with transverse cracks in one or two orthogonal directions. Further, it is shown that Poisson's ratio varies significantly through the thickness of a cracked outer layer a cross-ply laminate.
