Utilization of sustainable feedstocks to fabricate renewable thermosetting epoxy resins has been of great interest recently; however, their translation into composite structures and benchmark comparisons are poorly understood. Phloroglucinol is a phenolic molecule obtained from brown algae, and its epoxidized form is a high viscosity, high...

Modeling the consolidation of fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites at the part level presents a formidable computational challenge due to the multi-scale nature of the process. In this article, a method to bypass the multi-scale problem by homogenizing the micro scale and describing the medium with characteristic parameters is described....

This paper evaluates the potential of changing the welding force and the compliance of the energy director (ED) to reduce the effects caused by misaligned adherends, which were: increased through-thickness heating, reduced size of welded area and increased heating time. In the methodology that was followed, we welded adherends misaligned by...

A new model is proposed for the consolidation of hybrid textiles, in which air entrapment and dissolution are considered. One of the key parameters is tow permeability, which is described by the analytical model of Gebart and validated at very high fibre volume fractions by direct tow permeability measurement. The model also takes into...

Autoclave curing is one of the most energy consuming processes in manufacturing carbon fibre reinforced polymers. In order to improve the energy efficiency, one needs to understand energy usage in an autoclave and factors that influence it. This work presents two thermodynamic based models for estimating energy consumption in an autoclave....

The bias-extension test is one of the test methods to characterise the intra-ply shear behaviour of continuous fibre reinforced composites including fabrics and unidirectional (UD) materials. For the determination of the major mechanical properties of metals, often a uniaxial tensile test is used. Combination of these two methods for the...

The production of advanced composites from recycled carbon fibres (rCFs) is critical for the sustainable development of carbon fibre industry. Herein, non-woven mats consisting of commingled rCFs and Polyphenylene-sulfide (PPS) fibres were compression moulded to manufacture rCF/PPS composites, with the fibre/matrix adhesion being tailored by...

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...

Chopped Tape Thermoplastic Composites (CTTCs) offer high formability and performance for complex-shaped components in the aerospace and automotive industries. However, the mesoscopic discontinuity leads to spatial variabilities and correspondingly high scatter in the elastic properties of CTTCs due to the random orientations of chopped tapes...

The aim of this study was to characterise the microstructural organisation of staple carbon fibre-reinforced polymer composites and to investigate their mechanical properties. Conventionally, fibre-reinforced materials are manufactured using continuous fibres. However, discontinuous fibres are crucial for developing sustainable structural...

The unique sensing features of the tilted Fibre Bragg Grating (TFBG) as a single three-parameter optical sensor are demonstrated in this work, to monitor the manufacturing process of composite materials produced using Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Moulding (VARTM) process. Each TFBG sensor can measure simultaneously and separately strain,...

Ultrasonic welding is a promising joining technique for thermoplastic composite parts. On the way towards upscaling and industrialisation of this technology, it is crucial to understanding how it is affected by manufacturing tolerances. The objective of the research presented in this paper was to investigate the influence that misaligned...

This study presents two novel methods for in situ characterization of the reaction-diffusion process during the co-curing of a polyetherimide thermoplastic interlayer with an epoxy-amine thermoset. The first method was based on hot stage experiments using a computer vision point tracker algorithm to detect and trace diffusion fronts, and the...

Exploring routes for the effective use of recycled carbon fibres (rCFs) is critical to close the loop in the life cycle of carbon fibres. This work demonstrated a potential of using rCFs for interlayer toughening of carbon fibre/epoxy composites. Nonwoven mats based on rCFs and commingled rCFs/Polyphenylene-sulfid (PPS) fibres were used to...

Carbon fibre/epoxy composite joints were assembled with Poly-etherether-ketone (PEEK) and Poly-ethylenimine (PEI) films using a co-curing process to prepare single-lap joint specimens. The joints were tested under quasi-static loading conditions at 22 °C and 130 °C and a fatigue loading condition. The experimental results demonstrated better...

Thermoplastic compression resin transfer moulding coupled with injection moulding is an appealing process for the production of thermoplastic composites. However, its implementation at an industrial scale remains challenging as variotherm injection moulding could prevent solid skin formation in the parting line, making cavity sealing...

Discontinuous tape composites have considerable attention due to their high formability and tailorable structures. Despite their advantages, this discontinuity leads to complex structures and makes it difficult to predict their mechanical properties. On the other hand, they have high orientational and dimensional sensitivity, which causes...

Carbon fibre-reinforced polymer composites (CFRPs) outperform most structural engineering materials in specific stiffness and/or specific strength, especially in their unidirectional configuration. Unidirectional composites can be found as individual structural elements in cables or pin-loaded straps; they are however most commonly found in the...

Hot-pressing can be an attractive fabrication method that enables the forming of hybrid materials like thermoset based fibre metal laminates. However, the process simulation on press forming requires accurate material characterization and boundary conditions to facilitate part design for a defect-free component. In order to improve the overall...
