In this study, thermal elastic-plastic stress analysis is carried out on simply supported symmetric cross-ply (0degrees/90degrees)(2) and angle-ply (30degrees/-30degrees)(2), (45degrees/-45degrees)(2), (60degrees/-60degrees)(2) aluminum metal matrix laminated plates. Tsai-Hill Criterion is used as a yield criterion. Differential equations are solved with a sufficiently large number of integration intervals of the temperature. The intensity of the residual stress components in the cross-ply laminated plate are higher than those in the angle-ply laminated plates. Pie residual stress component of the shear stress alone in the angle-ply laminated plates is different from zero.
