Abstract

The buckling resistance of fiber-reinforced laminated cylindrical panels with a given material system and subjected to uniaxial compressive force is maximized with respect to fiber orientations by using a sequential linear programming method together with a simple move-limit strategy. The significant influences of panel thicknesses, curvatures, aspect ratios, cutouts and end conditions on the optimal fiber orientations and the associated optimal buckling loads of laminated cylindrical panels have been shown through this investigation.
