Efficient reinforcement of parts with the holes through anisoprinting technology (Kirsch problem)

Experimental sample with the hole was reinforced without weight increase, with uniform stress distribution.

The fiber steering plate is an experimental demonstrator of the method of efficient reinforcement of parts with the holes.

Holes are stress concentrators, significantly reducing the strength of structural elements.

Traditionally, to increase the strength of an element, a part thickness is enhanced that leads to increasing of the part weight.

Sample can be reinforced by curvilinear trajectories that suit to the loads distribution. Such reinforcement doesn't require weight increase. It's possible with a special approach to fiber laying of Anisoprint.
