The near-term artificial intelligence, commonly referred as ‘weak AI’ in the last couple years was achieved thanks to the advances in machine learning (ML), particularly deep learning, which has currently the best in-class performance outperforming other machine learning algorithms. In the deep learning framework, many natural tasks such as...

Laser assisted automated tape or fiber placement (LATP/LAFP) with in-situ consolidation is a promising technique for manufacturing large structures, eliminating the limitations of autoclave curing. Currently, 2-D models are mostly preferred for the thermal analysis of the process. A 3-D, transient thermal finite element model is developed to...

In the context of lightweight structure design for the transportation and robotics industries, new types of composite structures are being developed, in the form of trusses made of fiber-reinforced polymer composite members of small diameter (a few millimeters thick at most). Some concepts of wound trusses can be found in the literature, but...

This paper proposes an analytical model for predicting the non-symmetric crack growth and accompanying delamination growth in FMLs. The general approach of this model applies Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics, the principle of superposition, and displacement compatibility based on the understanding of deformation behaviour in eccentrically...

Due to the lack of fundamental knowledge of the physics behind delamination growth, certification authorities currently require that composite structures in aircraft are designed such that any delamination will not grow. This usually leads to an overdesign of the structure, hampering weight reductions. In real structures, delaminations tend...

Certification is the key step towards the implementation of structural health monitoring (SHM) as part of condition based maintenance programmes of aircraft fleets. That can only be accomplished by demonstration of system performance in multiple scenarios and in a statistically relevant way. This paper describes a fully computational approach...

This paper aims to investigate stress ratio effect on fibre bridging significance in mode I fatigue delamination growth of composite materials. Fatigue resistance curves (R-curves) of different stress ratios are determined and compared with the quasi-static R-curve. The fatigue R-curve of a high stress ratio is similar to the quasi-static...

Fibre bridging can significantly enhance delamination resistance making the use of a single Paris resistance curve to determine fatigue crack growth insufficient. An empirical Paris-type relation has been developed in a previous study to take fibre bridging into account in fatigue delamination growth. This relation was developed by correlating...

Ultrasonic welding is a promising assembly technique for thermoplastic composites and it is well-suited for spot welding. In this study, two typical welding process control strategies, i.e. displacement-controlled and energy-controlled welding, were selected to manufacture spot-welded joints. The influence of different boundary conditions,...

Ultrasonic arrays are used for non-destructive evaluation of structures for aerospace and other applications. With the increase in the usage of fibre-reinforced composites in aerospace structures, this evaluation becomes complex due to the effects of attenuation and reflection from the layer boundaries in composite laminates. Hence there is...

The influence of fiber-matrix adhesion on the linear viscoelastic creep behavior of ‘as received’ and ‘surface modified’ carbon fibers (AR-CF and SM-CF, respectively) reinforced polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) composite materials was investigated. Short-term tensile creep tests were performed on ±45° specimens under six different isothermal...

The in-plane and out-of-plane mechanical behaviour of both ultrasonically spot-welded and mechanically fastened joints was investigated by double-lap shear and pull-through tests, respectively. Spot-welded specimens showed comparable onset failure load and significantly higher joint stiffness compared to mechanical fasteners when carrying shear...

The present study utilizes a state-of-the-art stochastic modeling with structural health monitoring (SHM) data derived from strain measurements, in order to assess the remaining useful life (RUL) online in composite materials under fatigue loading. Non-Homogenous Hidden Semi Markov model (NHHSMM) is a suitable candidate with a rich mathematical...

This paper provides an experimental investigation into the pin loading effects on the crack growth behaviour in Fibre Metal Laminates. The pin loading effects and bypass loading effects are incorporated in two different tested joints. The analysis of the test results shows that pin loading dominates the crack growth only in the vicinity of the...

Measurement of the energy dissipation during fatigue crack growth is used as a technique to gain more insight into the physics of the crack growth process. It is shown that the amount of energy dissipation required per unit of crack growth is determined by Gmax, whereas the total amount of energy available for crack growth in a single cycle is...

The available models for the prediction of fatigue crack growth in adhesive bonds rely on the similitude principle. In most cases, one of three similitude parameters based on the strain energy release rate (SERR) is used; i.e. Gmax, (Δ√G)2, or ΔG. In all cases it is usually observed that keeping the similitude parameter...
