Design synthesis of composite structures through the integration of optimisation techniques and finite element analysis

Author(s): V.E. Verijenko & J.D. Jonson

Abstract:
The present study discusses concepts central to the development of a de- sign synthesis capability for composite structures.

By integrating reliable optimisation methods with finite element analysis codes a redesign philoso- phy based on design variable sensitivity analysis may be implemented.

The resultant automated design process therefore relies on decisions based on accurate quantitative measures of the relative performance of the design. The essential concept that is considered here is the efficient representation of the design problem in terms of approximated quantities in order to re- duce computational effort without compromising accuracy.

Approximation tech...
