  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Assessment of Aircraft Radar Cross-Section for Detection Analysis

    Författare :Björn Persson; Ulf Ringertz; Martin Norsell; Peter Bull; João Tasso de Figueiredo Borges de Sousa; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik; Försvarssystem; Military Technology;

    Sammanfattning : Hiding from and surprising an opponent are tactics that have been used in warfare throughout history. They were features that aircraft originally possessed when they were first used in military operations. However, development of military technology is an endless struggle between advances in technology and counter technology. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Damage Tolerance of Impacted Composite Sandwich Structures

    Författare :Moeen ud din Saeed Rajput; Malin Åkermo; Stefan Hallström; Magnus Burman; Christian Berggreen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; composite sandwich; cellular; polymer; material characterization; modulus; non-crimp fabric; low velocity impact; vibration; uncertainty analysis; drop-weight impact; fractography; barely visible impact damage; X-ray microtomography; compression-after-impact; bending-after-impact; high speed image processing; damage resistance; damage tolerance; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with damage tolerance of impacted sandwich structures for load bearing applications. Composite sandwich structures find wide application as lightweight solutions in aerospace components, since weight reduction and less fuel emissions are primary concerns for aircraft manufactures.
