This paper investigates the possibility to improve the dynamic response of complex aeronautical structures using variable angle-tow composites. The study has been performed using an innovative numerical approach developed in the framework of the Carrera Unified Formulation able to study laminates with curvilinear fibres whose trajectories can be arbitrarily defined. Refined kinematic structural models have been used to deal with the complex behaviour of such structures. Several cases have been investigated in order to validate this approach and the results have been compared with those from classical modelling approaches. Simple beam models and complex wing structures, have been considered. The effects of different fibres-paths have also been studied and compared. The results confirm that an appropriate tow lay-up can be used to improve the performances of wing structures, i.e. innovative design solutions can be achieved.
