Sandwich composite panels are increasingly used in the construction of marine vehicles because of their outstanding strength, stiffness and light weight properties. However, the use of composite panels comes with difficulties in the design process as a result of the large number of design variables involved, including composite material design, topologies and laminate schemes. Hence, this work deals with the presentation of an optimal design of laminated composite sandwich marine structures subjected to underwater explosion. The optimization process is performed using a genetic algorithm (GA), associated with the finite element method (FEM) for the structural analysis. In this optimization procedure, sandwich composite panel finite element model is built up, then the coupled acoustic–structural arithmetic from the widely used calculation program of the finite element “ABAQUS” is used to simulate and analyze the transient dynamic response of a sandwich composite panel that experiences loading by an acoustic pressure shock wave resulting from an underwater explosion “UNDEX”. This approach is well suited for enhancing the response of orthotropic and/or laminated composites which involve many design variables. In GA method, a new approach is considered to improve this evolutionary algorithm for laminated stacking sequence and material selection of face layer and cores. Simple crossover, modified ply mutation, and a new operator called “ply swap” are applied to achieve these goals.
