Abstract
The thermal structural twist deformation of a graphite epoxy optical alignment tube is minimized under consideration of manufacturing tolerances on layup angles of the laminates. Laminate properties, determined using an advanced laminate computer code, are input to structural analysis finite element codes and thermal analysis codes wherein design parameters are varied under control of an optimization process to minimize twist. Although this is a design peculiar problem, it demonstrates the ability to optimize composite structure using finite element techniques.
