Aligned discontinuous composites offer a tailorable structural response, as their mechanical behaviour can be tailored by adjusting their microstructure. However, the stochastic nature of their microstructure, and the myriad permutations of different constituent properties makes optimisation of these materials difficult. In this work, an accurate yet efficient virtual testing framework is combined with an intelligent Bayesian optimisation routine to maximise the initial stiffness, ultimate strain, and ultimate strength of aligned discontinuous composites.
