Paper Title:
Structural Optimization of Laminated Composite Plates for Maximum Buckling Load Capacity Using Genetic Algorithm
  Abstract

In this study, the structural optimization of laminated composite plates for maximum buckling load capacity is performed by using genetic algorithm. The composite plate under consideration is a 64-ply laminate made of graphite/epoxy, is simply supported on four sides, and subject to in-plane compressive static loads. The critical buckling loads are determined for several load cases and different plate aspect ratios using 2-ply stacks of 02, ±45, 902. The problem has multiple global solutions, the results of which are compared with previously published results.
