Abstract

e for the product development of (high-tech) lightweight systems across several industries. Accordingly, apart from the today’s extensive gain in constructive and technological engineering skills, particularly new high-strength materials lead to satisfy the present rigorous requirements (e.g. mandatory national CO2 regulations in automotive industry) for lightweight engineering in a much deeper dimension. Nevertheless, advanced composites such as fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are often used as “black metal” by simply keeping the geometry of a metal component and replacing the material, even though the predicted performance will rarely match expectations. As a consequence, and to address hitherto untapped potentials in terms of lightweight design, there is an urgent need for a systematic approach of a (intelligent) topology-optimized methodology focused on a detailed, but also integrated constructive and technological procedure to specify and optimize composite structures within nowadays requested multi-material systems. Therefore, a corresponding approach is presented in this contribution.
