Composite Beam Bending


Dear Experts,

I want to calculate the max deflection of a beam made up of 3 layers of stacked composite material as shown in the attachment. Only 1 material has a different modulus. How can I calculate the max deflection? The length of the two pieces is L/2 individually. 

Thank you.

Hello Nilay,

Thank you for the idea. 

I have obtained the modulus of the individual parts but now I'm not sure how can average it out? Is there any specific method to average them. Also is there any other method like double integral or area transformation method for the same problem?
