Application of Numerical Optimization to Design of Composite Shafts
MetadataShow full item record
Torsional shafts made from fibrous composite materials are designed for minimum weight. Multiple loading conditions are considered. Design variables are the shaft inner diameter, the ply thicknesses, and the ply orientations. Design constraints include limits on ply strain, displacement, frequency, and Euler and shell buckling. The design task is solved as a numerical optimization problem. Examples are presented to demonstrate the method.
