Abstract:

Article Preview

Fiber orientation angles optimization is carried out for maximum fundamental frequency of clamped laminated composite plates using the genetic algorithm. The meshless method is utilized to calculate the fundamental frequency of clamped laminated composite plates. In the present paper, the maximum fundamental frequency is an objective function; design variables are a set of fiber orientation angles in the layers. The examples of square laminated plates are considered. The results for the optimal fiber orientation angles and the maximum fundamental frequencies of the 2-layer plates are presented.
