3-D braided composites are a promising material for manufacturing tubular structures. However, a thorough understanding of their damage mechanisms under torsion is required to maximize their potential applications. The present work constructed a multiscale equivalent model, integrating mesoscopic and homogeneous structures to reveal torsional...

Although several studies have been performed, the compression after impact (CAI) failure of CFRP is still not entirely understood. It is still unclear what sequence of events determines the onset of failure in CAI tests and how the different damage modes are involved in this process. To experimentally investigate this matter, the present work...

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...

In this paper, the effect of interface properties on the compressive failure behavior of 3D woven composites (3DWC) is investigated by incorporating a micromechanics-based multiscale damage model (MMDM). The correlation between the mesoscopic stress of yarns and microscopic stress of constituents is established by defining a stress...

The fatigue behavior of an adhesively bonded joint is of key importance to its long-term structural integrity. However, the complex stress distribution inside a bonded joint does not make it easy to evaluate the fatigue behavior. This chapter discusses the various approaches that have been developed for predicting the fatigue behavior of...

This article presents an overview of methods for analyzing the facture and failure of adhesives. Special attention is given to stress analysis in adhesive bonds, as the difficulty of performing an accurate stress analysis is a major limitation of many failure analysis methods. The article also covers the effect of manufacturing and...

In previous literature, a plateau phase in fatigue growth of impact delamination projected area in CFRP was found. Explaining this plateau phase still represents a knowledge gap. In the present work, echo-pulse and through thickness transmission ultrasonic scan inspections were combined with acoustic emission monitoring to explain this...

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...

A novel micromechanics-based multiscale progressive damage model, employing minimal material parameters, is proposed in this paper to simulate the compressive failure behaviours of 3D woven composites (3DWC). The highly realistic constructions of microscopic and mesoscopic representative volume cells are accomplished, and a set of strain...

In this paper, a reliable progressive fatigue damage model (PFDM) for predicting the fatigue life of composite laminates is proposed by combining the normalized fatigue life model, nonlinear residual degradation models and fatigue-improved Puck criterion. To balance the accuracy of life predictions and computational efficiency, an adaptive...

Using the slow-growth certification approach for damage tolerance of composite aircraft structures has the potential to reduce their weight. Applying this approach requires that damage growth is slow, stable, and predictable. However, currently available methods do not allow for sufficiently accurate predictions, due to knowledge gaps related...

The effect of ply thickness on the notch sensitivity and bearing properties on carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites and their hybrid laminates with steel foils were studied. Laminates with ply thicknesses of 0.3 mm and 0.03 mm comprising of CFRP and hybrid laminates were manufactured and characterized using tension, open hole tension...

The effect of adhesive thickness on fatigue crack growth in an epoxy film adhesive (FM94) was investigated, using a combination of experiments and numerical modelling. For the range of thicknesses investigated an increased thickness led to an increased crack growth rate. It was found that the energy required per unit of crack growth did not...

Pascoe, J.A. (author)
Impact damage in CFRP structures is currently managed using the ‘no-growth’ concept, meaning that damage is not allowed to grow under fatigue loading. This requires that stresses in the material are kept below the fatigue limit, imposing a significant weight penalty. A ‘slow-growth’ concept would allow more efficient structural designs, but...

In the present work, a fatigue damage analysis of biaxial Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) specimens loaded at two different stress levels and a fatigue ratio, R=0.1, was performed. A cycle-by-cycle approach was used, utilizing results from Acoustic Emission (AE) measurements. The aim was to investigate the influence of the applied...

Current methods for prediction of fatigue crack growth are based on empirical correlations which do not take the crack growth behaviour within a single cycle into account. To improve these prediction methods, more understanding of the physical mechanisms of crack growth is required. In this research the acoustic emission technique was used to...

Piezoelectric energy harvesters are at the front of scientific research as enablers of renewable, sustainable energy for autonomous wireless sensor networks. Crucial for this disruptive technology is the achievable output power. Here we show, analytically, that the maximum output energy per unit volume, under a single sinusoidal excitation,...

The effect of temperature on fatigue crack growth in epoxy adhesive bonds was investigated for a range of temperatures from -55 to 80[U+202F]°C. The fatigue crack growth behaviour was characterised using both strain energy release rate (SERR) and by measurements of energy dissipation. It was found that for a given maximum SERR, or a given...
