Design of variable stiffness composites
Compliance (strain energy) optimization
ex. Simply-supported plate with a pressure load: Design methodology for variable stiffness composites: optimization using lamination parameters, conversion to fiber angles, and application of manufacturing limitations.
ex. Open hole tensile loading: Application to 3D printing of short carbon fiber reinforced PLA material
Critical buckling load maximization
ex. Compression of plate with fixed ends: Preliminary results of buckling optimization; optimum lamination parameters and fiber angles
