Purpose: Planning a safe path for flexible catheters is one of the major challenges of endovascular catheterization. State-of-the-art methods rarely consider the catheter curvature constraint and reduced computational time of path planning which guarantees the possibility to re-plan the path during the actual operation. Methods: In this...

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...
