Design and Analysis of Carbon/Epoxy Composite Tubular Parts
The paper presents a design and analysis methods of carbon /epoxy composite tubular parts. Testing and analytical computations, based on classical laminated plate theory, of the proposed and manufactured material delivered the engineering constants that have been used in the finite element simulations of two important safety tests for the handlebar (bending and torsion). The experimental results obtained for lateral bending test (critical test) are in agreement with the finite element simulations.
