Abstract


The design of endless-fiber reinforced composites is a highly challenging task since the mechanical properties are highly anisotropic and several mutually dependent parameters have to be defined. Therefore product developers have to be supported through design approaches and methods to exploit the whole lightweight potential of this unique material. However, many existing design approaches and methods are restricted to simple geometries and load cases, cause high modelling and computation times or lead to an unstructured design process. For this reason a new design approach is introduced consisting of four consecutive steps. The advantages of this new approach are the resulting structured design process, the low modeling and computational effort and the applicability to arbitrary load cases. The single steps of the design approach as well as its possible results will be demonstrated with the help of the front wing connection of a race car.
