The most important concern in design of filament-wound composite pressure vessels reflects on the determination of the optimum shape and optimum laminate stacking sequence of composite vessels based on the matrix cracking pressure and burst pressure of composite laminates. In this study the Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA) is used to find the optimum laminate stacking sequence of composite vessels that the design considerations are stability and strength constraints. the matrix cracking pressure of filament-wound composite pressure vessels made of different number of helical layers and different layers of Circumferential layers was calculated by using orthotropic material formulae and then, the burst pressure of composite vessels was calculated by using netting analysis. The optimum laminate stacking sequence of filament winding composite was found to maximize the matrix cracking pressure and the burst pressure by using Imperialist Competitive algorithm.
