The study of hygrothermal stress analysis in unsymmetric laminates is important for practical engineering design. Ting.T.C.T, Hsich.M.C and Hwu.C have solved some problems concerning to general composite laminates.  Here in this paper we have considered the problem of determination of general solutions for hygrothermal stresses in unsymmetric laminates subjected to uniform heat flow and moisture transfer in the  X1 - X2 plane.

2010 Mathematics subject classification 73.
