This paper is concerned with optimal design problems with a
special assumption on the coefficients of the state equation.
Namely we assume that the variations of these coefficients
have a small amplitude. Then, making an asymptotic expansion
up to second order with respect to the aspect ratio of the
coefficients allows us to greatly simplify the optimal design
problem. By using the notion of H-measures we are able to
prove general existence theorems for small amplitude
optimal design and to provide simple and efficient numerical
algorithms for their computation. A key feature of this
type of problems is that the optimal microstructures are
always simple laminates.
