Paper Abstract

A new method to optimize anisotropic fibre arrangements within composite material structures is presented in this paper. The so-called CAIO method (Computer Aided Internal Optimization) adapts biological fibre orientation methods for minimization of shear stresses within anisotropic or multi-layer composite material structures of engineering components to help avoid failure.
