This work aims at utilizing genetic algorithm (GA) to pursue the optimization of joined conical shells based on free vibration. Semi-vertex angles of cones and fibre orientation of the laminated composite are considered as design variables. First, the model is simulated in ABAQUS, the model is validated by comparing its results to other obtained from the literature. Then the first non-zero natural frequency of isotropic joined conical shell is maximized by changing the two semi-vertex angles of cones. Last the fibre orientation of laminated joined shells are optimized to achieve the maximum natural frequency.
