Biobased fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, consisting of natural lignocellulosic fibres such as flax or hemp, are great alternatives to synthetic fibres to mitigate the environmental impact of high-performance composites in engineering structures. Natural fibres such as flax have damping and specific mechanical properties suitable to...

In this study, a novel experimental approach was devised to investigate shear dominant and combined opening-shear planar delamination behaviours in composite laminates subjected to quasi-static out-of-plane loading. The patterns of planar delamination growth were depicted through different inspection techniques, including digital image...

To design crash structures for disruptive aircraft designs, it is required to have fast and accurate methods that can predict crashworthiness of aircraft structures early in the design phase. Axial crushing is one of the key energy absorbing mechanisms during a crash event. In this study, various analytical models proposed for calculation of...

Carbon emissions from commercial aircraft are expected to reach more than twice as much as the current levels by 2050. Unconventional aircraft, such as the Flying-V, are projected to achieve more than 20% fuel savings when compared to conventional configurations. However, these unconventional aircraft configurations pose a unique set of design...

Hydrogen is being investigated as aviation fuel, with the objective to achieve an energy transition for the aviation sector. Effective storage solutions are crucial to mitigate the aerodynamic penalty caused by its low volumetric energy density. The focus of this study is the integration of a cryo-compressed vacuum-insulated storage vessel...

This paper aims to illustrate the effect of the impact damage on fatigue behavior of CF/PEEK-titanium hybrid laminates. To achieve this end, a fatigue life model was proposed to predict the S–N curves of the laminates at various initial impact energy levels and stress ratios based on the energy dissipation approach. The energy dissipation...

Temperature can significantly affect fatigue delamination growth (FDG) behavior in composites, while fiber bridging has been frequently reported during FDG. The focus of this study was therefore on investigating temperature effects on FDG behavior with fiber bridging. Mode I fatigue delamination experiments were conducted on a thermoset...

Methods based on fracture mechanics have been widely used in fatigue delamination growth (FDG) characterization of composite laminates. These methods are based on the similitude hypothesis. It is therefore important to have appropriate parameters to well represent the similitude, which is useful for fatigue delamination test standard...

Fatigue delamination growth (FDG) is an important failure in composite structures during their long-term operations. Hygrothermal aging can have significant effects on interlaminar resistance. It is therefore really necessary to explore FDG behavior in composite laminates with hygrothermal aging. Dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA),...

Hygrothermal ageing has detrimental effect of the fatigue delamination growth (FDG) in carbon fibre reinforced polymer laminates, and may increase the crack growth rate by a factor of ∼5. The paper examines, how this degradation for Mode I fatigue delamination is affected by the severity of the ageing conditions. Fatigue delamination tests...

Fibre metal laminates (FML) were originally developed as a hybrid material, to create synergy between the impact resistance of metals and excellent fatigue and corrosion resistance of fibre reinforced polymers, and to overcome the shortcomings of monolithic materials. Yet, the scope of the FML concept is predominantly limited to GLAss REinforced...

Fibre reinforced polymer composites have found increasing use in aircraft structures. This means that fleet managers need damage assessment tools for such materials, in order to decide on appropriate sustainment strategies. Developing such tools is hindered by the difficulty of generalising from lab tests to predict the behaviour of full-scale...

Delamination growth is a key damage mode threatening the structural integrity of fibre reinforced polymer composite structures. To guide design and damage management of composite structures, research efforts have been made to understand delamination behaviours and establish standardized evaluation methods based mainly on one-dimensional...

Impacts on carbon fiber reinforced composites (CFRP) can produce a complex internal damage comprising multiple delaminations, which is hard to detect from visual inspection. This situation is known as barely visible impact damage (BVID). Considering that every airplane faces several impacts during its operational life, and that the majority of...

Toughness of epoxies is commonly improved by adding thermoplastic phases, which is achieved through dissolution and phase separation at the microscale. However, little is known about the synergistic effects of toughening phases on multiple scales. Therefore, here, we study the toughening of epoxies with layered poly(ether imide) (PEI) structures...

Quasi-static or cyclic loading of an artificial starter crack in unidirectionally fibre-reinforced composite test coupons yields fracture mechanics data—the toughness or strain-energy release rate (labelled G)—for characterising delamination initiation and propagation. Thus far, the reproducibility of these tests is typically between 10 and...

The exceptional mechanical properties of Polyether-ether-ketone(PEEK) polymers make them ideal candidates for interlayer toughening of carbon fibre/epoxy composites. Herein, ultra-thin PEEK films with a thickness of 8μm, 18μm and 25μm were used for interlayer toughening of an aerospace-grade carbon fibre/epoxy composite. The mode-I and mode...

In this study, an aerospace thermosetting composite was co-curing joined by Polyether-ether-ketone (PEEK) and Polyethylenimine (PEI) films, with an aim of developing advanced composite joints. The semi-crystalline PEEK films were surface activated upon a UV-irradiation technique to obtain a strong film–composite interface, while the amorphous...

After half a century of developing fatigue delamination prediction models, where accuracy seems more important than physical understanding, this research aims to merge both aspects. To that aim, strain energy release (SER) within the fatigue load cycle was studied using acoustic emission. The correlation between the measured strain energy...

Full impact damage tolerance assessment requires the ability to properly mimic the repeated impact response and damage behaviour of composite materials using quasi-static approximations. To this aim, this paper reports an experimental investigation evaluating two quasi-static methods for mimicking repeated impact response and damage behaviour...
