High-fidelity Multipoint Aerostructural Optimization of a High Aspect Ratio Tow-steered Composite Wing
58th AIAA/ASCE/AHS/ASC Structures, Structural Dynamics, and Materials Conference
Composite materials have been playing a major role in modern aircraft design due to their high stiffness and strength to weight ratio. While the advantages of composite structures over their metallic counterparts is significant, it is possible to improve even further on the benefits offered by traditional composites through the use of novel composite manufacturing methods. One such method is automated fiber placement, whereby each layer of the laminate is laid up with spatially steered fiberdoi:10.2514/6.2017-1350 fatcat:ckhtbfn3lbcyvjbuxl6wccv3jq
