Variable Stiffness Laminates are created by spatially varying the fiber orientation resulting in designs that makes use of curved fibers rather than Uni-directional fibers to tailor the properties to design requirement. The advent of automated manufacturing methods such as Automated Fiber Placement and Tailored Fiber Placement has made variable...

Striving to improve structural efficiency the aerospace industry shows increasing interest in variable-stiffness composite laminates. Advanced fiber placement is a hybrid manufacturing technique that offers the flexibility of both filament winding and automated tape laying. With the development of this novel system curved tows can be placed and...
