forming FMLs

What are the issues in forming (simple curvature) laminates of composite-metal, e.g. fibre-metal laminates used in aircraft structures like Glare, Arall.
- in terms of material properties such as Modulus, tensile strength, shear properties, etc
and how is failure defined in these cases ?

Try using google with a search phrase of "forming glare arall" and you will immediately find a .pdf file with the following paper
