The aim of this study is to evaluate the engineering constants and strength properties of unidirectional carbon/epoxy composite laminates manufactured by dry filament winding process. After winding, the laminates were cured aided by hot compression. The composites were cut along the fiber direction (0°) and transversely to it (90°). Tensile modulus and Poisson's ratio were measured by using longitudinal and transverse extensometers. Most of the independent elastic constants, major and minor Poisson's ratio and strength properties were obtained, except those related to shear, which were estimated through micromechanical analysis.
