Abstract null null Due to its high efficiency, carbon fibre reinforced composite materials are used in many applications, including aeronautical, automotive, and civil structures. A wide range of manufacturing processes are used in composites production and each of these processes is marked by many processing parameters. However, because of the variations that are inherent to the manufacturing method, the final properties of the structure can be strongly affected, mainly the strength values. On ...

Abstract The paper investigates the split-disk test methodology for measuring mechanical properties of a filament wound composite. Hoop strain is measured by three-dimensional (3D) Digital Image Correlation (DIC) on the outer surface of ring specimens. A finite element model (FEM) is employed to investigate the strain distribution along the circumference and the thickness of the ring and the effect of friction between the ring and the disk. The FE simulation shows that the effect of friction bet...

Abstract This paper deals with the modelling and analysis of six degree of freedom random vibration test. It involves an advanced multi-input multi-output random vibration test system where three translational and three rotational motions can be controlled simultaneously. In this work, a mechanical model of the six degree of freedom vibration test system is established such that eight exciters are modelled as spring damper pairs and the shaker table is assumed to be rigid. The acceleration prope...

CUBESPEC is an ESA in-orbit demonstration 6U CubeSat mission, currently in phase A/B. CUBESPEC will deliver months long series of high-resolution spectroscopy to study the structure of massive stars. The payload consists of a Cassegrain telescope with a rectangular primary mirror of 9 x 19 cm2 and a compact high-resolution echelle spectrograph. We aim at a 2023 launch demonstrating the CUBESPEC concept: providing the astronomical community with a generic solution for affordable space-based spect...

The finite element method is the default choice for the prediction of complex forming processes. In this work, this method is applied to the prediction of large radius air bending of high-strength steels. Three distinct formulations are used for the prediction: plane, shell and solid. Appropriate mesh parameters and material implementation are used in order to obtain high prediction accuracy and to minimise the calculation time. A new law for the approximation of the hardening behaviour of high-...

The increased joint efficiency, distribution of loads and decrease in stress concentrations have led to the increased use of adhesives for structural bonding. However, there are a limited number of...
