The design of complex systems in today’s aerospace domain requires a balance between the ever-increasing complexity of the supporting technology and the drive to develop those systems in a compressed timeframe. The performance knowledge of a preliminary design must shift backwards in the lifecycle in order to exploit that knowledge when there is...

Krutul, E.C. (author), Groves, R.M. (author)
This paper is concerned with the modelling of the complete opto-mechanical measurement system, including shearography instrument, loading technique and the response of the object under test and the comparison of the simulation results with experimental results. To show the applicability of this technique, the response of an aluminium flat plate...

This paper demonstrates that existing Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) techniques have potential during the production phase in addition to their application for maintenance and for in-flight monitoring. Flaws occur during composite fabrication in industry, due to an imperfect process control and human errors. This decreases production...

The sandwich composites fuselages appear to be a promising choice for the future aircrafts because of their structural efficiency and functional integration advantages. However, the design of sandwich composites is more complex than other structures because of many involved variables. In this paper, the fuselage is designed as a sandwich...

The soft impingement effect at the later stage of partitioning phase transformations has been modeled both for the diffusion-controlled growth model and for the mixed-mode model. Instead of the linear and exponential approximations for the concentration gradient in front of the interface used in the past, a general polynomial method of dealing...

Neelakantan, S. (author)
Titanium alloys possess good corrosion properties, high temperature stability and high strength-to-weight ratio. However, they fall short in providing the optimum strength-ductility relation in the most demanding structural applications, including the aerospace sector. Inspired by the possibility of enhancing the strength-ductility relation in...

Parlevliet, P.P. (author)
Thermoplastic composites are currently investigated for application in windmill turbine blades for their recyclability. A suitable manufacturing technology for these thick structures is liquid resin infusion followed by in-situ polymerisation of Anionic Polyamide-6 (APA-6). During manufacturing of thick composite structures, temperature...

Zad Poor, A.A. (author)
Tailor-Made Blanks (TMBs) are hybrid assemblies made of sheet metals with different materials and/or thicknesses that are joined together prior to forming. Alternatively, a monolithic sheet can be machined to create required thickness variations (machined TMBs). The possibility of having several thicknesses and/or materials in one single...
