The applicable bending moment equation of LIPCA is necessary even though the fiber layer ply orientation is changed. The aim of this research is to evaluate the relationship between the total effective moment (ME) and Bernoulli-Euler bending moment (M) when the ply orientations of unidirectional CFRP, which is one of the various laminate configurations in LIPCA, are changed. Since the related previous equation between the performance stroke range (Δh) and the radius of curvature (ρ) was just applicable to the CFRP ply orientation [0], it will be modified using these results. The related modified equation, which has nothing to do with the various CFRP ply orientation, is also suggested and compared with the previous equation.
