Abstract: LAMPAT and LAMPATNL are design tools developed for analyzing thick-section composite structures with progressive failure and material nonlinearity. These tools are implemented as subroutines in the finite element software ABAQUS. This user's manual provides information on the proper use of these subroutines, providing specific details on their setup and output. This manual is the primary documentation for users who wish to use LAMPAT or LAMPATNL to model thick-section composites.
