Abstract

In this paper, an analytical energy based method is pro-posed to determine the optimal orientation of orthotropic ma-terials under static loading. Instead of assuming the strain orstress is xed with respect to orientational variables, the de-pendency of strain and stress elds on material orientation isexplored by introducing an energy factor in the inclusion model.From the derivations, the strain based method and the stressbased method can be recovered and their limitations are dis-cussed. Numerical examples from these methods are presented and compared.
