Automated fiber placement is a manufacturing technology that enables to build composite laminates with curvilinear fibers. To determine their optimum mechanical properties, finite element analysis is commonly used as a solver within an optimization framework. The analysis of laminates with curvilinear fibers coupled with the fiber path optimization requires a large number of function evaluations, each time-consuming. To reduce the time for analysis and thus for optimization, a metamodel is… CONTINUE READING
