This thesis project focuses on the evaluation of the Extended Finite Element Model (XFEM) for modelling skin-stringer separation in thermoplastic composite stiffened panels. The study uses test results from a reference study in the literature on a PEKK-FC carbon composite panel with three stringers joined to the skin using a short-fibre...

Pushing the envelope of aerospace structures requires the complete exploitation of their potential in terms of load-carrying capacity per unit weight for both economic and ecological reasons: the two most important being the reduction of fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. A key approach involves allowing structures like stiffened...

Wrinkles are ubiquitous in the world around us. In our daily lives, we encounter wrinkles in various forms, whether in our clothes or on our skin. Wrinkles emerge as a result of a delicate interplay between bending, membrane, and foundation stiffness contributions within membranes. While experimental investigations provide insights into the...

Fire-induced domino effect is one of the main threats to hazardous material storage tanks, and many attempts have been conducted to assess the vulnerability of storage tanks exposed to fire to evaluate domino effect risk. However, past research ignored the influence of wind load on the thermal buckling behavior of storage tanks exposed to...

This paper presents the work on six single-stringer specimens manufactured using the card-sliding technique with non-crimp fabrics and adopting a Double-Double (DD) stacking sequence. These specimens, representative of sub-structure level components, are used to investigate post-buckling and failure in aerospace structures. Two specimens...

Parallel computing is omnipresent in today's scientific computer landscape, starting at multicore processors in desktop computers up to massively parallel clusters. While domain decomposition methods have a long tradition in computational mechanics to decompose spatial problems into multiple subproblems that can be solved in parallel, advancing...

Prostate cancer is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer in men. A minimal invasive treatment for prostate cancer is transperineal laser ablation (TPLA), which involves inserting a needle containing a laser fibre into the prostate to induce local cell death. The ovipositor of the parasitoid wasp offers a solution to challenges in TPLA, as...

In this work, it is demonstrated that kirigami deformation behaviour can be controlled by tailoring the anisotropic material that is used to create the kirigami structure. The ultimate goal is to find a relationship between the material pattern and the deformation behaviour of the kirigami structure. An anisotropic thermoplastic polyurethane...

It is becoming increasingly clear that the effects of climate change should be decreased or even mitigated. Green alternative sources of energy are being explored, and wind energy emerges as an important option that can be exploited on a large scale. Wind turbines are placed more and more often offshore due to larger and more stable wind...

The Koiter methodology is a reduced-order model that can predict the initial post-buckling characteristics of structures. Incorporating the Koiter approach within finite element simulations resulted in challenges. These included mesh sensitive initial post-buckling coefficients, computationally expensive high-order derivatives, and phenomena...

Background: Scoliosis is a three-dimensional abnormal curvature of the spine, with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) being the most common type. Current fusion treatment is highly invasive and removes all mobility of the fused spinal segments. To tackle this problem, non-fusion techniques were developed, that try to correct the abnormal...

Compliant mechanisms are a popular alternative to conventional mechanisms because of their advantages on mass reduction, friction, backlash and lubrication. However, the major drawback in the use of compliant mechanisms is the stiffness is the desired direction of motion. The advantages of conventional and compliant mechanisms can be combined if...

Two aeronautical thermoplastic composite stiffened panels are analysed and tested to investigate the buckling behaviour, the skin-stringer separation and the final failure mode. The panels are made of fast crystallising polyetherketoneketone carbon composite, have three stringers with an angled cap on one side, and are joined to the skin by a...

Launch vehicle structures, such as payload adapters and interstages, are increasingly designed and constructed using composite materials due to their high stiffness- and strength-to-weight ratios. Therefore, it is important to develop a validated finite element modeling methodology for designing and analyzing composite launch-vehicle shell...

The Vibration Correlation Technique (VCT) is a non-destructive method to predict buckling loads for imperfection-sensitive structures. While successfully used to validate numerical models and predict experimental buckling loads, recommendations for defining the VCT experiment are scarce. Here, its sensitivity towards the number of load steps...

This study aims at better understanding the damage tolerance of stiffened composite panels subjected to fatigue loads in the post-buckling regime. Ten single-stringer hat-stiffened specimens with an initial delamination between the skin and the stringer foot were manufactured, and then tested under quasi-static and fatigue loads in post...

High-strength steel beams are known to have less plastic rotation capacity than beams with lower yield strengths. This has been related to the decreased strain-hardening ability of high-strength steels, and various rules and standards for steel structures stipulate maximum limits on the allowable yield-to-tensile strength ratio ((Formula...

Thermoplastic composite three-stringer panels with omega stiffeners and conduction welded joints are designed, analysed and tested until final failure to investigate the performance of the welded joint in post-buckling. The three-stringer panels are designed to be structurally representative of the fuselage demonstrator of the Clean Sky 2...

In steel structures, a lot of attention is paid to lightweight structures, i.e. reduction of dead load without compromising structural safety, integrity and performance. Thanks to modern steel aluminium foam sandwich panel manufacturing technology a new possibility became available for lightweight structural design. Assessment and...

The aim of this research is to investigate the failure mechanisms of the filament-wound composite tubes under axial compressional loading by using an acoustic emission approach. First, the mechanical properties of ±45°C composite tubes were obtained experimentally. Then, failure due to the buckling phenomenon and crashworthiness...
