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...

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 this paper, a numerical simulation method of mixed-mode fatigue crack propagation was explored using the extended finite element method (XFEM) and the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT). Both 2D and 3D numerical models were selected to simulate the fatigue crack propagation of steel specimens. Two coefficients were proposed to...

Fatigue crack growth in metals has been studied intensively for more than half a century. This research field has been closely connected to the engineering industry throughout history. It is therefore no surprise that the main focus has mostly been on developing better prediction models rather than on understanding the phenomenon of fatigue...

Wrapped composite joint is an innovative technique which connects steel hollow sections through bonding such that the fatigue performance is improved compared to welded joint. In this paper, a DIC-based method of monitoring surface strains is proposed to quantify the debonding crack propagation within the composite wrap layers during high cycle...

The UniGrow model is an analytical procedure to assess the fatigue crack growth based on elastic–plastic crack tip stresses and strains. The assumption is that fatigue crack growth (FCG) can be considered as a process of successive crack re-initiations resulting from material damage in the crack tip zone. The main parameters of this model are...

The purpose of this research study is to analyse the effect of the design of mechanical fastener on their effectiveness as Disbond Arrest Features (DAFs). This was done by means of a sensitivity study using a 3D model using the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT) to model the disbond growth of a single lap shear specimen comparing the Strain...

The substantiation of fatigue crack closure corrections is disputed, based on the closure stress definition. The ΔK<sub>eff</sub> equation lacks a physical explanation. An inconsistency is observed between the opening stress S<sub>op<sub>phen</sub></sub> as used by this equation and the physical opening stress S<sub>op<sub>phys</sub></sub>....

To improve resolution of in-situ measurement of crack closure and opening in fatigue, potential drop (PD) measurement technique has been further developed to measure thousands of times through each load cycle with high precision. The results are interpreted with physical phenomena like strain, Poisson's effect, piezo-resistivity, plasticity,...

The assessment of fatigue crack propagation of steel structures is essential and important especially to improve the application of high strength steel in construction. The load ratio R, reflecting mean stress effects, will be changed with crack extension in the steel structures with complicated geometry. In this paper, the Walker equation is...

In this work, an approach based on the Virtual Crack Closure Technique, included in the commercial finite element code ABAQUS, is adopted to study the propagation of delamination in composite structures under quasi-static and fatigue loads. The methodology, originally capable of simulating only delamination under quasi-static loads, has...

A parametric finite element model incorporating virtual crack closure technique was developed in order to determine the critical disbond size and location for disbond growth in an adhesively bonded skin stiffened structure, subjected to uniaxial compression loading. The model was validated using static experimental tests on both pristine and...

Conventional theories to describe and predict FCG are based on a SIF parameter, ΔK. If ΔK is used as similitude parameter to predict FCG, an R-effect arises. This R-effect can be accounted for by means of plasticity induced crack closure: A plastic wake behind the crack tip causes the crack to close before a zero tensile load is applied. As such...

Fulfilling our energy demands with renewable resources is one of the world’s greatest current challenges. Building offshore wind farms and using wind energy is one option to achieve this goal. The cost efficiency of offshore wind farms is still limited however, due to high construction and maintenance costs. Several research and development...

The appropriateness of some common similitude principles with respect to describing and predicting fatigue damage propagation is discussed. Linear elastic fracture mechanics have provided a basis to describe damage growth using stress intensity factors or strain energy release rates, both related to the work of Griffith and Irwin. The fatigue...

Detection and sizing of closed cracks is challenging as these cracks exhibt a transparent behavior when interacting with ultrasonic waves. To face this challenge, high amplitude ultrasonic waves are used by which harmonics are generated at the crack interface. Exploting this non-linear response, the probability of detection and sizing of such...

Traffic is increasing rapidly in terms of number of vehicles and also in axle loads. In order to maximize the availability of the pavement and to minimize hindrances to traffic because of maintenance works, long life pavements are needed. An asphalt pavement with self repairing capabilities is believed to be very useful to this respect. The self...

The fatigue life of an aircraft is dependent on the loads of the aircraft service spectrum. Due to the variable nature of the load spectrum, fatigue crack growth is accelerated and decelerated by interaction effects. Interaction effects, like crack closure, make an accurate prediction of the fatigue life challenging. The material GLARE, a...
