During the automated manufacturing of fibre reinforced laminates, defects can be produced. Gaps and overlaps between adjacent prepreg layers can be produced in composites during the tape-layup process. However, the topic is not yet studied for hybrid materials, in which metal sheets and thin prepreg layers lead to different effects due to the...

Gaps and overlaps between pre-preg plies represent common flaws in composite materials that can be introduced easily in an automated fibre placement manufacturing process and are potentially detrimental for the mechanical performances of the final laminates. Whereas gaps and overlaps have been addressed for full composite material, the topic...

GLARE is used in fuselage panels for its improved fatigue and residual strength. In this thesis, predictive models are developed for residual stresses and distortions of GLARE induced by manufacturing. Material behaviour of the epoxy adhesive and the glass-epoxy prepreg is characterised for thermal and curing circumstances. The derived...
