Since welded joints in structures are known to be critical regions for crack initiation and growth, study of fatigue crack growth behavior of welded joints under various loading scenarios are essential. In present study, two groups of experiments were conducted. At first, fatigue crack growth behavior of Al5083 butt welded joint subjected to...

In this study, different surface pretreatments were applied to clean and activate titanium alloy surfaces. The samples were subjected to grit blasting treatments using two different pressures and afterwards, a UV/Ozone treatment was applied at different times to study the wettability and surface oxidation of the titanium samples. Scanning...

The present study reports on the evaluation of residual stress field formation and distribution in Central Cut Plies (CCP) specimens. Real-time measurements were performed using a distributed sensing fiber optic system based on Rayleigh Backscattering, which was successfully able to capture strain distribution inside the adhesive layer at...

Redistribution of residual stress during crack growth in butt welded joint of Al5083-H111 was studied. Furthermore, the effect of post weld heat treatment and removing the weld reinforcements on fatigue crack growth rate was investigated. Three dimensional simulations of welding process and fatigue crack growth were conducted. It was shown...

Understanding and characterizing crack growth is central to meeting the damage tolerance and durability requirements delineated in USAF Structures Bulletin EZ-SB-19-01 for the utilization of additive manufacturing (AM) in the sustainment of aging aircraft. In this context, the present paper discusses the effect of differentAMprocesses,...

Thermoplastic composite spot welded joints are more well-suited for carrying shear load rather than peel load. However, peel load is difficult to be eliminated in single-lap joint configuration. In this paper, a series of mechanical tests were carried out to study the effects of the spot spacing and the number of welded spots on the secondary...

Although aerospace traditionally has always had a multidisciplinary approach to engineering and design, the increasing complexity of aircraft and spacecraft and the rapid digitization within the aerospace industry has led to a large number of related engineering and scientific disciplines such as electrical engineers, computer scientist to work...

The application of strain gauges as recommended by the ASTM standards provides accurate strain measurements in isotropic materials. However, their use in composite materials becomes more challenging due to their anisotropic nature. In this study, we hypothesized that the use of the distributed sensing system and the three-dimensional digital...

The lack of a widely-accepted test standard for characterizing the mode II fatigue disbond growth behavior of adhesively bonded interfaces is a challenge to the research community in terms of producing consistent and repeatable results. Typically, researchers apply the End Notch Flexure specimen, which is already used for static delamination...

A challenge in developing an in-depth understanding of the crack growth resistance of Additively Manufactured materials is the fact that their mechanical properties have been shown to be both process and part-geometry dependent. Up to now, no studies have investigated the influence of off-axis (beyond the three orthogonal build orientations)...

Mechanically fastened joints are susceptible to the presence of multiple-site damage (MSD) cracks in the critical fastener row. Different from the MSD growth in joints consisting of metallic substrates, the two coupled metal crack growth and interfacial delamination propagation failure mechanisms in Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) make the...

In the context of the prevalence of thin-walled metallic aerospace structures, the added resistance to crack propagation offered by a built-up structure is desirable from a damage tolerance standpoint. The analysis of failure in such structures, however, is limited by the lack of crack opening solutions. This paper develops analytical models...

Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques enable fabrication of bone-mimicking meta-biomaterials with unprecedented combinations of topological, mechanical, and mass transport properties. The mechanical performance of AM meta-biomaterials is a direct function of their topological design. It is, however, not clear to what extent the material type...

In this paper, the transition from teaching on-campus to an online audience consisting of working professionals in an Aerospace Engineering context is described. The differences in the learner’s needs and the transition in teaching methods and style that is required from teaching staff is discussed. This is illustrated by two case studies: for...

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...

Additively manufactured (AM) porous metallic biomaterials are considered promising candidates for bone substitution. In particular, AM porous titanium can be designed to exhibit mechanical properties similar to bone. There is some experimental data available in the literature regarding the fatigue behavior of AM porous titanium, but the...

Ultrasonic welding is a promising assembly technique for thermoplastic composites and it is well-suited for spot welding. In this paper, the in-plane and out-of-plane mechanical behaviour of ultrasonically spot-welded and mechanically fastened joints are investigated by double-lap shear and pull-through tests, respectively. Special attention was...

When teaching Engineering to students it is important that we not only teach about<br/>how to engineer new things but also look at the failures and performance problems<br/>from an engineering point-of-view. The field that studies this part of engineering is<br/>known as Forensic Engineering. The American Society of Civil Engineers defines this...
