In this study, finite elements model created in ANSYS program of long thin and flexible carbon fiber reinforced composite cover design prepared by using Unigraphics NX program CAD module was analyzed. The topography optimization was done by transferring the analysis result to GENESIS program. According to the geometry which was emerged as a result of optimization model analysis has been done with ANSYS by updating the design of the part. When the findings are evaluated, it was observed that the natural frequency of the composite cover which was remodeled after topography optimization increased nearly 1.6 times compared to the initial design. Then, the new one and the traditional designs which has same mass were compared and it was put forth with the data that the new design was more resistant. While the final design obtained after all analysis are converted into the product, the dynamic characteristic of the composite cover was examined according to different fiber orientation angles. According to the results, it has been determined the most suitable rib geometry that should be preferred in order for these similar types of long and flexible structures to have a more resistant structure
