Abstract

These lecture notes concern optimal plastic design of plane structures orthotropically reinforced by long fiber systems. These structures are considered as submitted to a plane state of stress or in bending. The problems are seen as distributed parameter optimization problems and are dealt with by means of a variational technique. In such a way, necessary conditions for optimal solutions are found and their mechanical interpretation discussed as well. In conclusion, an approach for approximate solutions fulfilling the optimality criteria is presented and the analogy with elastic solutions pointed out.
