This paper presents two new design tools for lightweight aerospace structures. The first tool is the Tailored Fibre Placement (TFP) design tool TACO. It is used to optimize the fibre orientations of structures made of Carbon Fibre Reinforcement Plastics (CFRP). The optimization concept is explained and results are given for a horizontal tail plane connection beam of an aircraft. The second tool, iBuck, is a fast, semi-analytical local buckling and post-buckling tool for stiffened panels that are loaded in-plane. The panels are assumed to be representative for an aircraft fuselage and are stiffened in axial and circumferential direction. Results are presented for axially loaded panels and compared to FE-results.
