In this study, the effect of rapid laser heating, which is typical during laser-assisted fiber placement (LAFP), on the micro- and meso- structure of the thermoplastic tape was investigated. Thermoplastic tapes were heated above the melting temperature with different heated lengths (30 and 80 mm and heating times (0.2 and 0.8 s) in a...

The effect of thermal contact resistance (TCR) correlated to the degree of intimate contact (DIC) between the incoming tape and the substrate on the temperature history during laser-assisted fiber placement (LAFP) was investigated. A novel experimental methodology was designed to understand the effect with a non-contact method which did not...

In the structural design of aircraft wings, aeroelastic tailoring is used to control the aeroelastic deformation to improve the aerostructural performance by making use of directional stiffness. Recently, tow-steered composites, where the fibre angles continuously vary within each ply, have been proven to have the potential to further expand...

Understanding the three-dimensional variability of unidirectional composites is relevant to the material performance and the development of advanced material modelling strategies. This work proposes a new methodology for the characterization of unidirectional composites, showcased on carbon fibre/poly(ether-ether-ketone) tapes. Three...

The outstanding properties of carbon fibre-reinforced polymer composites are affected by the development of its microstructure during processing. This work presents a novel approach to identify microstructural features both along the tape thickness and through the thickness. Voronoi tessellation-based evaluation of the fibre volume content on...

The effects of laser-induced deconsolidation on the compaction process of CF/PEEK tapes were investigated. First, tapes with different degrees of deconsolidation were manufactured using a laser heater. This procedure resulted in samples with different waviness, thickness, void content and surface roughness values. Then, as-received and laser...

Mechanical properties of composite laminates can be tuned by either tailoring ply orientations or by using ply drops to change thickness profiles. The latter cause resin-rich pockets to form in thermoset composites that are autoclave cured after lay-down. This paper focuses on the morphology of ply drop regions with carbon fibre thermoplastic...

In this paper, design strategies are developed to explore better approaches of enforcing local layer-wise curvature constraints in the optimization of variable stiffness laminates in order to ensure the manufacturability of optimized designs based on the limitations of automated fiber placement. The methods developed here aim to improve an...

Laser-assisted automated tape placement (LATP) in-situ consolidation of thermoplastic composites offers an efficient solution for production of large, high performance composite structures. The present work investigates laser repass treatment as a method of enhancing surface roughness and mechanical properties of LATP processed CF/PEEK...

This study investigates a device for in-line continuous spreading of carbon fibre/thermoplastic pre-preg tape for potential application in the Laser-Assisted Automatic Tape Placement (LATP) laminate manufacturing process. The spreading device allows variable tape width to be achieved locally during lay-up. Integration of this device in the...

Intimate contact development under LAFP-specific thermal and mechanical boundary conditions/interactions and the effect of process parameters are investigated. One-layer, unidirectional strips of CF/PEKK material were placed with different process parameters on a flat tool surface to create different intimate contact conditions. The concept...

Automated manufacturing of thermoplastic composites has found increased interest in aerospace applications over the past three decades because of its great potential in low-cost, high rate, repeatable production of high performance composite structures. Experimental validation is a key element in the development of structures made using this...

For the application of composite materials to become more widespread and replace traditional materials their manufacturing processes and final products will need to be competitive and be e.g. lighter, stronger or stiffer and quicker, easier or more cost-efficient to produce than traditional materials. The state of the art for pick-and-place...

The temperature history during the laser assisted fiber placement (LAFP) process is very important since it significantly influences the final quality of the structure. Air pockets between subsequent plies, caused by the lack of intimate contact, act as insulators and reduce the through-thickness heat transfer. This phenomenon is commonly...

This research work deals with the buckling load prediction of reinforced laminated composite panels of aeronautical interest. Being subjected to pure compression, these panels are characterized by stable post-buckling. Thus, the vibration correlation technique (VCT) is utilized herein as an effective nondestructive means to extrapolate...

Composite materials are finding increasing application, for example in commercial aircraft. Traditionally fiber angles are restricted to 0°,±45° and 90°. The current work exploits the possibility of using multiple ’non-conventional’ laminates where either fiber steering (‘variable stiffness’), ply drops (‘variable thickness’), or a...

A critically important consideration of stiffened structural panels is the interfacial properties between skin and stiffener. In the present study a novel implementation of laser-assisted tape placement (LATP) was used to produce a representative skin-stiffener of a wingbox from carbon fibre reinforced PEEK. First, a stiffener is manufactured...

A method to optimise the fibre angle distribution of variable stiffness laminates is proposed. The proposed method integrates a fibre angle retrieval step with a fibre angle optimisation procedure. A multi-level approximation approach is used in combination with the method of successive approximations. First, fibre angle retrieval is done by...

A way to approximate the compliance of composites for optimisation is described. A two-level approximation scheme is proposed inspired by traditional approximation concepts such as force approximations and convex linearisation. In level one, an approximation in terms of the reciprocal in-plane stiffness matrix is made. In level two, either...

The use of composite materials in airplanes has been increasing over the last decades, mainly due to the high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratio of composites. Traditionally, the possible fibre angles are often restricted to 0°, ±45° and 90°, referred to as conventional laminates. However, with the rise of fibre placement machines,...
