An Approach For The Design Of Multi-Material Mechanical Components

Konstantinos Anyfantis, Panagiotis Stavropoulos, Panagis Foteinopoulos & George Chryssolouris
A computational procedure for the calculation of the material parameters involved in the structural design of multimaterial components is presented. The developed scheme can be used in the design process for the full or partial replacement of a metallic part with a metal/fiber–reinforced composite bi-material, aiming at weight savings. Finite element simulations are incorporated into an algorithm that rapidly reduces the design space until a good set of design variables has been reached. The process...
