The application of fibre reinforced thermoplastic composites in aerospace industry has increased drastically in the last decade. Carbon fibre/Polyether-ether-ketone (C/PEEK) is one of the high-performance thermoplastic composites and is replacing metallic and thermosetting counterparts in various aircrafts components. Parts made from such...

Damage in materials and structures is unavoidable, leading to the time deterioration of its functional properties (e.g. barrier, load bearing, aesthetics) and ultimate repair or replacement. Lifetime extension can be achieved by using materials with initially higher performance or using materials that can repair themselves (self-healing). The...

Aluminium AA2024-T3 is a high strength aluminiumalloy widely used in aerospace. The strengthening copper-rich intermetallic phases, however, make the material very susceptible to aqueous corrosion and severe pitting. To protect the metal, coatings loaded with corrosion inhibitors are typically used. Traditionally, highly efficient CrVI-based...

Vibrations are inherent part in an aircraft system and supressing them has always been a technological challenge. Over the recent years, damping of mechanical vibrations is becoming increasing important to improve the reliability and performance of the aircraft systems and also increase the safety of passengers. As a response to these issues,...

This thesis investigates the self-healing mechanisms of deformation-induced defects in ferritic Fe-Au(-B-N) and Fe-Mo alloys, by segregation and precipitation of Au elements and Fe2Mo compounds. For this purpose, cyclic tensile tests on the Fe-Au(-B-N) alloys are conducted interrupted with isothermal ageing steps at 550 °C. Coincidence Doppler...

This thesis investigates the shear strain-driven energy harvesting performance of compliant piezoelectric composite material systems. A characterization study was performed to observe and quantify the piezoelectric shear coupling of two phase piezoelectric composite materials ranging from 0-3 (particulate) to 1-3 (fiber) composites. To this aim,...
