Computing global strain distributions in complex aerospace and wind energy structures in quasi-real time is an important challenge for the aerospace and wind energy industry. Shape sensing is being considered as a potential means for obtaining global strain fields of complex structures. This is achieved through the use of inverse finite element...

Ultrasonic Lamb wave techniques are described as one of the most encouraging developments for structural health monitoring of aerospace composite structures. The reliability of those techniques is highly dependent on the quality of signal processing algorithms capable of extracting useful information out of complex responses. When damage...

Existing shape sensing methods use individual sensor types, determining either strain or displacement well, but not both. More accurate shape sensing could improve load estimation, necessary for accurate life assessment of the structure.

In this work, the effect of temperature exposure on the strength of resistance welded joints is analysed. Glass fibre polyphenylene sulphide (GF/PPS) laminates were joined using the resistance welding technique and a stainless steel metal mesh as the heating element. Single lap shear tests at temperatures between 20°C and 150°C were performed to...

The purpose of this study is to simulate the two-dimensional, transient and continuous heat transfer during the thermoset Automated Tape Laying (ATL) process. The heat transfer analysis is coupled with a cure kinetics model of the thermoset prepreg tapes used for the process. Unlike most studies, the process is modelled in a Lagrangian framework...

This paper provides a study on mode I fatigue delamination growth in composite laminates using energy principles. Experimental data has been obtained from fatigue tests conducted on Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) specimens at various stress ratios. A concept of fatigue fracture toughness is proposed to interpret the stress ratio effect in crack...

The novelty of the research is the detection of different types of flaws in the prepreg carbon fibre-reinforced fibres (CFRP) layup compared to in cured products. This paper presents the development of a new method for in situ detection of prepreg CFRP production flaws combining laser displacement sensors and analytical modelling. Experimental...

This work proposes to treat quasi-static mode I delamination growth of CFRP as a low-cycle fatigue process. To this end, mode I quasi-static and fatigue delamination tests were performed. An average physical Strain Energy Release Rate (SERR), derived from an energy balance, is used to characterize the energy released in crack extension. The...

Current prediction methods for growth of disbonds under fatigue loading are generally based on a correlation with either the maximum strain energy release rate (SERR) or the SERR range. This paper highlights some issues with this approach. In particular, it is argued that the maximum SERR or the SERR range alone do not give sufficient...

Optical coherence elastography (OCE) has been applied to the study of microscopic deformation in biological tissue under compressive stress for more than a decade. In this paper, OCE has been extended for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, to deformation measurement in a glass fiber composite in the field of nondestructive testing. A...

The concept of relating fatigue disbond growth to the strain energy release rate (SERR) is critically examined. It is highlighted that the common practise of using only the maximum SERR or only the SERR range is insufficient to correctly characterize a load cycle. As crack growth requires energy, it is argued that growth should be related to the...

An overview is given of the development of methods for the prediction of fatigue driven delamination growth over the past 40 years. Four categories of methods are identified: stress/strain-based models, fracture mechanics based models, cohesive-zone models, and models using the extended finite element method. It is highlighted that most models...

With increasing interest in epoxy-based carbon fiber composites for structural applications, it is important to improve the fire resistant properties of these materials. The fire resistant performance of these materials can be improved either by using high performance epoxy resin for manufacturing carbon fiber composite or by protecting the...

Based on a customized time-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) system, a series of signal processing approaches have been designed and reviewed. To improve demodulation accuracy and image quality, demodulation approaches such as median filter, Hilbert transform, and envelope detector were investigated with simulated as well as experimental...

An experimental study was performed on the repeated low-velocity impact behaviour of GLARE. Damage evolution in the material constituents was characterised with successive number of impacts. Records were correlated with visual inspection, ultrasound C-scan and chemical etching. The stiffness of the plate varied when cumulating the number of...

The impact response of fiber metal laminates (FMLs), has been investigated with experiments and numerical simulations, which is reported in this article. Low-velocity impacts were carried out to study the effects of metal type and thickness within FMLs. Glare5-3/2 laminates with two aluminum layer thicknesses and a similar FML containing...

An analytical and experimental investigation into the low-velocity behaviour of GLARE Fibre-Metal Laminates (FMLs) has been performed. A quasi-static approach was developed to estimate the perforation energy absorbed between the constituents of GLARE. The analysis considered contact area increase during perforation and strain rate effect on...

We have investigated the evolution of damage during fatigue loading in Al–Cu 2024-T3 alloys using the positron annihilation Doppler Broadening (DB) technique. This technique enables us to monitor in a non destructive way, at the atomic and vacancy level, the formation of deformation defects and their interaction with solute atoms at selected...
