Determining fiber orientation around geometric discontinuities is challenging and simultaneously crucial when designing laminates against failure. This study presents an approach for selecting the fiber orientations in the vicinity of a geometric discontinuity. Maximum stresses in the discontinuity region are calculated using Classical Lamination Theory and the stress concentration factor. The use of the Tsai-Hill and Tsai-Wu failure theories estimate the minimum moment to cause failure in a lamina. Fiber orientations around the discontinuity are obtained using the Tsa-Hill failure theory.
