The goal of the thesis (executed for Fokker Aerostructures) was to further the understanding of critical parameters in the DCB test method for thermoplastic composites. The influence of fiber bridging, specimen thickness, insert film thickness, crack length and crack opening rate are investigated by means of experimental DCB tests for...

The strict quality requirements for aerospace composite structures give rise to costly quality control procedures. In automated fibre placement (AFP) these procedures rely heavily on manualwork and inspection. This research aims at performing preventative non-destructive evaluation of composite laminate quality based on an online geometric...

The interest of the aerospace industry in thermoplastic composites has increased over the last years. One of the advantages of using thermoplastics over thermosets is the possibility to use thermoplastic welding as a joining technique. Ultrasonic welding is considered one of the most promising variants: it is very fast, results in high-quality...

Previous study in Structural Integrity and Composite group showed that creepforming Dyneema fiber into hemispherical helmet preform is indeed possible. However, the set-up in conventional set-up was complex and a long time was required to generate uniform temperature across the material. This thesis will investigate the possibility of using...

Artificially aged aluminium-lithium alloys have recently seen renewed interest in them in the aviation industry. They have a decreased density, while keeping or improving the fatigue properties compared to other aluminium alloys. Research shows that these aluminium-lithium and other advanced aluminium alloys exhibit crack turning and crack....

Solid round bars with a shoulder fillet are frequently used in engineering structures because it facilitates a smooth transition in thickness. However, the presence of shoulder fillets is currently neglected in the prediction of fatigue crack growth in engineering practice. Since stress concentrating locations like a shoulder fillet can have a...

The present study focuses on understanding the effect of load and temperature on Acoustic Emission (AE) signal propagation in an Aluminium 2024-T3 panel. In addition, the ability of an AE system to locate damage under these operational and environmental conditions was evaluated. The work was performed in two stages. In stage one, the wave group...
