Filament-wound fiber-reinforced polymer composite piping has excellent corrosion resistance and high specific properties, which makes it an attractive choice for various industries. Another attractive aspect of composite piping is the ability to select fiber architectures and material systems to meet design specification and maximize performance while minimizing material usage. The present contribution describes an optimization approach that is aimed at providing design recommendations for multi-material composite piping with multiple fiber orientations.
