The optimised design of composite structures has attracted great interest from researchers, in the pursuit of developing more effective and efficient optimisation methods. In this thesis, two-stage layup optimisation methods based on the use of lamination parameters are developed for both single laminates and large-scale composite laminates with ply drop-offs.
