Title:
A Parameterized Surface Method to Determine Optimal Variable Stiffness Layup Design by Global Search 
Abstract:
We propose a method related to the level-set method to find optimal steered fibre or variable stiffness (VS) designs for composite laminates. In order to steer the fibres, iso-contour lines of an artificial surface, defined over a 2D geometry domain, are used. The artificial surface is based on a spline approach using a relatively small number of control points. This ensures the smoothness of the artificial surface which can help guarantee continuity/smoothness of the obtained fibre paths. The t...    »
