An analytical and experimental study was conducted to investigate the elastic and failure behavior of composite laminated pipe under torsion. The analytical model was developed based on the mechanics of composite materials and the maximum strain failure criterion. Five composite pipe samples were tested on a specially designed pipe torsional tester. A finite element analysis was also performed to be compared with the analytical and experimental results. The relationship between applied torque and shear strain and between torque and torsional angles was obtained by all three methods. The effects of fiber angle and its deviation were also studied.
