Abstract

I review research on self-sensing and structural optimizations of laminated carbon/epoxy composites in Japan. Self-sensing is one of the multiple functions of composites; i.e., carbon fiber is used as a sensor as well as reinforcement. I present a controversial issue in self-sensing and detail research results. Structural optimization of laminated CFRP composites is indispensable in reducing the weights of modern aerospace structural components. I present a modified efficient global search method using the multi-objective genetic algorithm and fractal branch and bound method. My group has focused its research on these subjects and our research results are presented here.
