In this paper, design strategies are developed to explore better approaches of enforcing local layer-wise curvature constraints in the optimization of variable stiffness laminates in order to ensure the manufacturability of optimized designs based on the limitations of automated fiber placement. The methods developed here aim to improve an...

Reducing weight and improving strength of structures have always been major design goals in the aerospace industry since its inception. In particular, strength directly affects the safety and serviceability of an airplane and is therefore of great importance in structural design. Improving the strength of an airframe can effectively increase its...

A way to approximate the compliance of composites for optimisation is described. A two-level approximation scheme is proposed inspired by traditional approximation concepts such as force approximations and convex linearisation. In level one, an approximation in terms of the reciprocal in-plane stiffness matrix is made. In level two, either...

Optimisation algorithms used to automatically size structural members commonly involve stress constraints to avoid material failure. Therefore the cost of optimisation grows rapidly as the number of structural members is increased due to the corresponding increase in the number of constraints. In this work, an efficient method for large scale...
