Abstract null null Structural adhesives are widely used for joining composite components in many industries and crack growth in such materials is far more likely to occur when they are subjected to repeated cyclic loading than to monotonic loading. Whilst the Hartman-Schijve equation for fatigue crack growth (FCG) has been shown to hold for cohesive crack growth in adhesives under Mode I, Mode II and Mixed-Mode I/II loading, little attention has been paid to its ability to capture the effects of...

Abstract At cryogenic temperatures thermoset polymers suffer from low fracture toughness. Herein, we present a strengthening and toughening technique for cryogenic applications using cupric oxide (CuO) nanorods. These nanorods are synthesized via a hydrothermal reaction to give an average length of 1.64 μm and a diameter of 270 nm. They exhibit a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) at cryogenic temperatures, due to the magnetostriction effect. Epoxy nanocomposites containing up to 8 wt% o...

Abstract This paper discusses two approaches that have been proposed to account for the data scatter observed in delamination growth tests under cyclic-fatigue loading and thereby enable an estimate of a worst-case delamination growth curve for use in the damage tolerance and durability assessment of composite and adhesively-bonded airframes. The two approaches discussed are: (a) the normalisation approach, whereby the energy release rate is divided by the resistance to delamination growth, GR(a...

Abstract Graphene due to its two-dimensional structure, large surface area and high impermeability is regarded as an excellent potential filler for the development of anti-corrosive coatings by creating a natural barrier to the diffusion of electrolytes. Epoxy polymers are widely used as protective coatings, and in the present study, commercially-available graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) were dispersed into an epoxy resin using three-roll milling (3RM). The GNP-modified epoxy was coated onto mild ...

The extent and quality, i.e. consistency, of the fusion bonding between filaments that occurs during the fused filament fabrication (FFF) process play an important role in determining the mechanical performance of 3D printed polymeric parts. This present research is designed to quantify these parameters of the fusion bonding between individual filaments deposited during the 3D printing process. Polyamide 6 (PA6) specimens were prepared from both 3D printed single-layer and single-filament films....

Abstract In the present paper numerical modelling results are described to predict the effects of the hardness of a projectile impacting a woven carbon-fibre reinforced thermoplastic-matrix composite. The projectiles are prepared from either relatively soft gelatine or hard high-density polyethylene (HDPE) materials, of the same mass, and are fired from a gas-gun at about 60 m.s-1 to impact a woven carbon-fibre reinforced poly(ether-ether ketone) (woven CF/PEEK) composite. A two-dimensional, ela...

Abstract A three-dimensional (3-D) finite-element analysis (FEA) model incorporating an elastic-plastic (EP) damage model, which was implemented as a user-defined material (‘VUMAT’) sub-routine in a FEA code (‘Abaqus/Explicit’), is developed to simulate the impact response of carbon-fibre reinforced-plastic (CFRP) composites. The model predicts the load versus time and the load versus displacement responses of the composite during the impact event. Further, it predicts the extent, shape and dire...

The present paper describes the results from experimental and theoretical modelling studies on the behaviour of continuous carbon fibre/polymer matrix composites subjected to a relatively low-velocity or high-velocity impact, using a rigid, metallic impactor. Drop-weight and gas-gun tests are employed to conduct the low-velocity and high-velocity impact experiments, respectively. The carbon fibre composites are based upon a thermoplastic poly(ether–ether ketone) matrix (termed CF/PEEK) or a ther...
