[15,16] employed a shear deformable FE to deal with supersonic flutter of laminated composite panels and skew composite plates. The In an experimental program, Boeing successfully used 1,500 composite parts to replace 11,000 metal components in a helicopter. With this motivation, nonlinear attributes of guided elastic waves, as typified by second harmonics, have been increasingly studied and employed in NDI and SHM for aerospace structures because of their higher sensitivity to small-scale damage (eg, fatigue cracks) compared with linear counterparts. As a result, the stress–strain curve of an individual filament of high-strength carbon fibre (Ef ≈ 220–240 GPa) will show increasing modulus with strain. The dynamic instability which affect thin-walled plate and shell structures is referred to as panel flutter. Composite aerospace structures are prone to a particular type of damage that is not critical in metallic aerospace structures (i.e., low-velocity impact damage). The stress level is (a) Schematics of various damage mechanisms; and (b) photo of a composite surface. With less weight in the aircraft structure, significant operational cost savings are realized; payload yields increased, maintenance costs decreased, and grea… The impactor shape is also important and it may have a significant effect on damage amplitude (Figure 30). strength, higher thermal conductivity and lower coefficient of thermal Effect of impactor size and type on the resulting damage in a laminated composite. Sandwich panels are composites which consist of two thin laminate outer skins and lightweight (e.g., honeycomb) thick core structure. strength of tooth varies through the thickness. Moreover, ease of fabrication and As early as 1959-60, the Vetrol Company, now Boeing Helicopters, When such an impact happens on a conventional metallic structural part, either the part is not damaged at all, or, if it is damaged, then it shows clearly as an indent or scratch.

But, in many The concept of composite materials is ancient. Carbon-carbon composites have been successfully employed in the brake Worst-case impact damage is defined as the damage caused by an impact event (e.g., a 1-in hemispherical impactor) at the lesser of the following two energy levels: (1) 100 ft-lb, or (2) enough energy to cause a visible dent (0.1-in deep). One of the early major application is the graphite-epoxy mesh grid off-set parabolic antenna reflector developed by Hughes Aircraft Company for the Canadian ANIK satellite which was launched in 1972. In composite structures, a similar impact may damage the structure without leaving any visible marks on the surface (the so-called barely visible damage, BVD). The The other two etches provide oxides approximately 20 nm thick having larger-scale features that provide some physical bonding with an adhesive (Figs. over-flying the Atlantic, encircling the globe and succeeding in several other extreme thermal environments. superior Composite antenna dishes are much lighter compared to with tilt rotors, aerospace planes and hypersonic vehicles with multi-mode trans Aerospace structures are mainly composed by thin-walled structures like plates and shells, which are, therefore, when exposed to high speed airflow on the outer surface and at certain critical speed might become dynamically instable. cases                                                           KFRP, GFRP, Tomahawk                   Shaft for Comparative mechanical properties of some man-made structural, Materials  had a wood wing and a sandwich monocoque fuselage whose wall consisted of a A few examples are control surfaces using co-cured construction, fuselage … We then illustrate the optimization (or elastic tailoring) of laminates using straight fibres, followed by a presentation of the potential advantage of a new manufacturing technique which incorporates in-plane steering of fibres to achieve curved, elastically tailored tows.

Impact damage effects on laminated composites. plants (cotton, flux, hemp, etc. The fibres are not resistant to the temperatures encountered in metal and ceramic matrix composite melt processing, and protective coatings or low-temperature manufacturing routes are needed. SHM data were obtained through in-flight tests as well as through on-ground inspections, and predictions were performed to obtain both local and component-level measures of damage. Mazdas, provided more weight savings, lower maintenance cost, reduced level of It is obligatory that a composite structural designer should have a thorough knowledge about the process and development of composite materials and their characteristic behaviour.

(i.e., single crystal fibers) are grown from some of these materials. reflector developed by Hughes Aircraft Company for the Canadian ANIK satellite In practical instances, the front face damage may be barely visible. One of these is due to the two-phase nature of the alloy, i.e., large grains of the aluminum-rich alpha phase with an intergranular, vanadium-rich beta phase. These springs were later introduced during Because it relies on chemical bonding between the adhesive and the hybrid organic/inorganic structure, it does not require the fine microscopic features to form physical bonding that the anodized surface does.
