The use of high performance composites is becoming increasingly common in safety critical components. The key driver behind this research is the need to develop a better understanding of through thickness stresses where fibres and matrix are not uniformly distributed throughout the thickness. Classical distribution of composite is not always possible due to problems associated with manufacturing processes. Poor fibre distribution through the thickness affects the through thickness properties and can compromise the structural integrity. This paper presents a semi-analytical tool that can be used for modelling of fibre group optimisation. It can be used for analysis at both microscopic (fibre resin interactions) and macroscopic (composite laminate) levels. At each level the components reactions to externally applied load have been investigated through its load transfer mechanisms. The effects of anisotropy, edge distance and pitch between fibres, numbers of rows and finally dissimilar fibre materials and fibre cross section have been considered.
