The behavior of delaminations and fiber breakage resulting from three-point bending test is a major concern in the study of composites. This research focused on analyzing fiber breakage and delaminations in advanced placed ply composite laminates through a series of tests. In order to compare simulation results with the experimental data, the...

Stroke, currently ranked as the second leading cause of mortality and the most prevalent source of enduring disability, imposes significant societal and economic consequences. These consequences encompass the necessity for extended care, rehabilitation, and the economic burdens associated with lost productivity. In the diagnostic process,...

A multi-material structure combines diverse materials, allowing for precise tailoring of properties in specific regions. The integration of dissimilar materials leads to superior performance compared to single-material components. Bimetallic structures, a subset of multi-material systems, offer site-specific performance owing to the contrasting...

In composite structures, delamination damage is typically the most common failure mechanism. Accurately characterizing the delamination behaviour of composite laminates is therefore crucial for predicting the fatigue safe-life of such structures. To this end, double-cantilever beam (DCB) composite specimens are used to measure the interlaminar...

Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are advanced materials that consist of a ceramic matrix reinforced with a high-strength, high-stiffness material, such as carbon fibers. They offer excellent thermal and chemical stability while exhibiting low weight and exceptional mechanical properties. A novel CMC material is the C/C-SiC produced with 2/2...

In this work, the hydrogen fatigue of pipeline steel X60, its girth welds and weld defects were investigated through in situ fatigue testing. A novel in situ gaseous hydrogen charging fatigue set-up was developed, which involves a sample geometry that mimics a small-scale pipeline with high internal hydrogen gas pressure. The effect of hydrogen...

The present study proposes a comprehensive integrity assessment approach for a full-scale adhesively-bonded bi-material joint for maritime applications. The joint represents a cross-section of the bond-line connection of a ship with a steel hull and a sandwich composite superstructure. The full-scale joint consists of a sandwich composite...

Atherosclerotic plaque rupture in carotid arteries is a major cause of cerebrovascular events. Plaque rupture is the mechanical failure of the heterogeneous fibrous plaque tissue. Local characterization of the tissue's failure properties and the collagen architecture are of great importance to have insights in plaque rupture for clinical...

A big technological leap in Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics (CFRP's) has brought to the market materials that are able to operate under severe thermomechanical loading conditions and yet remain lightweight. This is of high interest for new developments in aerostructures, such as supersonic airliners or the hydrogen aircraft. A continuous need...

Over the past 25 years, interest in thermoplastic composites in aircraft has steadily increased. Combining winding and laser-assisted tape placement is a promising method to manufacture thermoplastic structures using in-situ consolidation, as shown recently by manufacturing a variable stiffness, unitized, integrated-stiffener thermoplastic...

This paper presents an experimental and numerical study of composite plates, analyzing the interaction between mechanical and thermal loads related to buckling and the occurrence of mode jumping. A novel experimental setup for thermomechanical testing was developed. The setup is conceived around a frame with a low coefficient of thermal...

The bending strength of flat glass panels including the effects of their edges, is commonly determined by means of the four-point bending test method. This is an established and reliable method. However, when testing glass thinner than 3 mm, large deformation may occur. This means that the calculated stresses might not correspond to the...

Magnets for High Energy Physics applications built to date are generally superconducting magnets, which operate at cryogenic temperatures. The reliability and safety of the applications are entirely dependent on good design which in turn rely heavily on predictable materials performance. Where at these low temperatures the fracture toughness is...

MYRRHA (Multi-purpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications) is an accelerator driven system, currently under development at SCK CEN in Mol, Belgium. This nuclear system will use liquid Lead-Bismuth eutectic alloy as a spallation target for fast neutron production and as coolant. The ideal structural material for a liquid metal...

This work discusses the design and demonstration of an in-situ test setup for testing pipeline steels in a high pressure gaseous hydrogen (H2) environment. A miniature hollow pipe-like tensile specimen was designed that acts as the gas containment volume during the test. Specific areas of the specimen can be forced to fracture by selective...

Tendon consists of highly aligned collagen-rich fascicles surrounded by interfascicular matrix (IFM). Some tendons act as energy stores to improve locomotion efficiency, but such tendons commonly obtain debilitating injuries. In equine tendons, energy storing is achieved primarily through specialisation of the IFM. However, no studies have...

Single-lap shear (SLS) joints are straightforward to manufacture. This makes them especially attractive for testing polymer composite welded joints. Owing to local heating, which is characteristic of composite welding processes, the production of more geometrically intricate joints (such as double-lap or scarfed joints) or bigger joints (such...

Poly-etherether-ketone (PEEK) fibres (average diameter 30μm) were surface-activated by a UV-irradiation technique, and then used as interlayers of carbon fibre/epoxy composites. The results of a flatwise tensile test demonstrated a significant improvement in the PEEK fibre/epoxy adhesion upon the UV-treatment, i.e. the ultimate strength...
