Targeting Problems of Composite Failure

Abstract:

Article Preview

Predicting precisely where a crack will develop in a material under stress and exactly when in time catastrophic fracture of the component will occur is one the oldest unsolved mysteries in the design and building of large-scale engineering structures. Fitness considerations for long-life implementation of aerospace composites include understanding phenomena such as fatigue, creep and stress corrosion cracking that affect reliability, life expectancy, and durability of structure. Structural integrity analysis treats the design, the materials used, and figures out how best components and parts can be joined; furthermore, SI takes into account service duty.
