Minimum weight design of laminated composite panel under combined loading was studied using linear and nonlinear deformation theories and by closed-form analysis and finite difference energy methods. Various buckling load factors are obatined for laminated composite panels with rectangular type longitudinal stiffeners and various longitudinal length to radius ratios, which are made from Carbon/Epoxy USNl25 prepreg and are simply-supported on four edges under combined loading, and then for them, minimum weight design analyses are carried out by the nonlinear search optimizer, ADS. This minimum weight design analyses are constructed with various process such as the simple design process, test simulation process and sensitivity analysis. Subseguently, the buckling mode shapes are obtained by buckling and minimum weight analyses.
