The aeronautical industry has set ambitious goals to reduce its environmental impact and become sustainable. Addressing rising emissions involves strategies such as reducing structural weight, due to its direct impact on fuel consumption, and the use of new materials and manufacturing techniques. Research and development on thermoplastic...

In this research, conduction welded C-struts, part of a thermoplastic composite fuselage designed and manufactured in the framework of the Clean Sky 2 STUNNING project, are investigated. Five specimens made of two C-section profiles are manufactured and welded using conduction welding in three different configurations with variations in the...

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...

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...

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 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 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...
