Short fiber reinforced thermoplastics are often made using extrusion compounding and injection moulding techniques. Fiber breakage takes place during processing. In finished fiber reinforced parts, there often exists a fiber length distribution. Measurement of fiber length is often performed on...
Low velocity impacts to fibre reinforced plastic composites cause a pattern of damage consisting in general of delamination, fibre breakage and matrix cracking. Such damage is accidental and may go unnoticed; therefore composite structures must be designed assuming impact damage exists. Previous...
In this paper, the theoretical analysis of the curvature effects on the stress distribution around circular cut-outs in monolithic isotropic cylinders is extended to a theory for the calculation of the stress distribution in sandwich cylinders with cut-outs. The stresses in the facings of a...
This paper discusses the development of a software tool for design of composite bolted joints, using three-dimensional finite element analysis. The tool allows the user to create the joint geometry through a menu-driven interface and then generate a customised mesh according to the user's needs....
Tension–tension fatigue tests were performed on fabric-based composites processed using resin transfer molding. The composite systems consisted of epoxy and phenolic matrices reinforced with plain weave carbon fabric. The residual strength of open-hole laminates was also investigated for...
It has been shown previously that multiple stacks of cross-plied unidirectional prepreg reinforcement can exhibit similar levels of formability to that shown by woven cloth, and that under some conditions can out-perform woven cloth in this respect. However, little work has been reported on the...
Process combinations of filament winding with online-impregnation of fibre bundles have previously been widely neglected, due to the technical difficulties of impregnating a large number of slender filaments with a highly viscous thermoplastic melt. An innovative impregnation technology, called...
Structural adhesive bonding is an enabling technology for the implementation of composite assemblies in automotive applications. Therefore, the quality and reliability of the composite bond must be assured. An advanced thermal non-destructive test (NDT) method, pulsed thermography, was evaluated...
A cure model has been developed for the viscosity of two-part epoxy/amine resins, focussing on low extents of cure—the most important region for the mould-filling stage in resin transfer moulding. A key advantage of the model is that it is not explicitly dependent on the extent of cure;...
