Stacking sequence optimizations for composite laminates using fractal branch and bound method-Application for supersonic panel flutter problem with buckling load condition
Viewed 179 times since Sat, Apr 12, 2014
The fractal branch and bound method was developed by the authors for optimization of stacking sequences to maximize buckling load of composite structures. The method demands an approximation of a design space with a response surface comprising... Read More
Response Analysis of Dynamically Loaded Composite Panels
Viewed 310 times since Thu, Dec 6, 2012
The background to this study is the need for handy design tools, which can, in a short time, calculate the most appropriate material composition and panel scantlings for FRP sandwich and single-skin vessels. Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) is a... Read More
