Voges, Jordy (author)
Safety and reliability of aircraft structures are of main concern within the aerospace industry, preferably without influencing the availability of the aircraft and maintenance and operation costs. As damages in composites can be hard to detect, methods are being developed to detect damages which can potentially lead to a (catastrophic) failure...

Steel jacket support structures for offshore wind turbine towers made of circular hollow sections (CHS) are becoming a competitive solution compared to monopiles in deeper waters. The current limitation to improving the durability and cost-effectiveness of the CHS structures is the low fatigue endurance of their welded joints. Fatigue-driven...

Papoulidou, Sofia (author)
The current structural demands include complex designs, efficient utilization of material resources, and maintenance of existing structures and infrastructure. In all these cases, the connections between structural components are the main focus of design since they are widely considered the weakest link in a structural system. The demand for...

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...

Hydrogen is one of aviation's most promising fuel alternatives in the coming years. However, to store it, a large and light vessel is needed. <br/><br/>The solution to this problem can be the carbon fibre fuel tank. Composite structures provide significant weight savings, which is crucial in this application. However, despite its superior...

Military vehicles are often subjected to dynamic loads from mines. To protect these vehicles, steel plating underneath the vehicle is applied. However, these steel plates can be quite heavy, resulting in a slower vehicle. Composite laminates, however, are much lighter and also prove to be capable of protecting these vehicles from mines.<br/...

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...

Biobased fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, consisting of natural lignocellulosic fibres such as flax or hemp, are great alternatives to synthetic fibres to mitigate the environmental impact of high-performance composites in engineering structures. Natural fibres such as flax have damping and specific mechanical properties suitable to...

High-strength engineered cementitious composites (ECC) typically require higher cement content, which is negative from the sustainability point of view. To alleviate this problem, herein a low-cost and eco-friendly high-strength ECC (with a compressive strength of over 100 MPa) was developed, and diatomite was used to replace a small amount...

Methods based on fracture mechanics have been widely used in fatigue delamination growth (FDG) characterization of composite laminates. These methods are based on the similitude hypothesis. It is therefore important to have appropriate parameters to well represent the similitude, which is useful for fatigue delamination test standard...

Data-driven methodologies have found increasing usage in the last decade for remaining useful life (RUL) prognostics of composite materials utilizing structural health monitoring (SHM) data. Of particular interest is the reliable RUL prediction in cases where the end-of-life is not in between the extreme values within the testing dataset. For...

Auxetic cementitious cellular composites (ACCCs) exhibit desirable mechanical properties (e.g., high fracture resistance and energy dissipation), due to their unique deformation characteristics. In this study, a new type of cementitious auxetic material, referred to as peanut shaped ACCC, has been designed and subsequently architected using...

During the last few decades, industries such as aerospace and wind energy (among others) have been remarkably influenced by the introduction of high-performance composites. One challenge, however, for modeling and designing composites is the lack of computational efficiency of accurate high-fidelity models. For design purposes, using...

Despite extensive research, eliminating hexavalent chromium-based inhibitors from aerospace coatings remains challenging due to a lack of understanding of coating degradation during aircraft service. This study addresses the issue by investigating the protective mechanisms and aging processes of chromate-containing coatings on aircraft...

Heat pumps are a promising option to decarbonize the industrial sector. However, their performance at a plant-level can be affected by other process changes. In this work, process changes that improve the heat pump's performance have been identified using Process Change Analysis (PCA), where the background pinch point is used as a reference...

Debonding is characterized as the governing failure mode in the innovative wrapped composite joints made with glass fiber composite material wrapped around steel hollow sections without welding. The prerequisite for predicting debonding failure of wrapped composite joints is to obtain fracture behavior of the composite-steel bonded interface....

Fatigue delamination growth (FDG) is an important failure in composite structures during their long-term operations. Hygrothermal aging can have significant effects on interlaminar resistance. It is therefore really necessary to explore FDG behavior in composite laminates with hygrothermal aging. Dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA),...

Temperature can significantly affect fatigue delamination growth (FDG) behavior in composites, while fiber bridging has been frequently reported during FDG. The focus of this study was therefore on investigating temperature effects on FDG behavior with fiber bridging. Mode I fatigue delamination experiments were conducted on a thermoset...

This work explores a spatial printing method to fabricate continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTPCs), which can achieve exceptional mechanical performance. For models giving complex 3D stress distribution under loads, typical planar-layer based fiber placement usually fails to provide sufficient reinforcement due to their...
