A Hamiltonian state space approach for analytic determination of deformation and stress fields in multilayered cross-ply symmetric laminates under extension and bending is presented, in which the equations of anisotropic elasticity, the end conditions, the traction-free boundary conditions on the bounding planes of the rectangular section, and the interfacial continuity conditions in multilayered laminates are satisfied, regardless of the number of layers. The solutions serve as useful benchmarks for numerical modeling and material characterization of composite laminates.
