In this paper, a unified formalism is proposed to deal with several different coupling analyses of composites. This formalism is established from the Stroh formalism for two-dimensional problems and the Stroh-like formalism for coupled stretching-bending problems and their extensions to the magneto-electro-elastic coupling analysis. Since different coupling conditions can be represented by one unified formalism, if for particular problems the boundary conditions of different coupling problems can be written in one unified form, the final solution should also have the same form for different types of problems. To show the usefulness and powerfulness of this unified formalism, a typical example of crack problems is presented in this paper.
