  4. 4. Enhanced Composite Joint Performance through Interlacement of Metal Inserts

    Författare :Sahar Akbarpour; Stefan Hallström; Conor McCarthy; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The work in this thesis investigates bolted joints in fibre reinforced composites with particular focus on a novel insert concept. The concept is characterised by replacing all composite plies with stacked metal patches, locally around a bolt hole, so that they jointly form a solid metal reinforcement. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Automated layup and forming of prepreg laminates

    Författare :Andreas Björnsson; Kerstin Johansen; Mats Björkman; Marie Jonsson; Lars Pejryd; Linköpings universitet; []
