How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Filament wound composite structures are widely used in the field of pressure vessels, tubes, pipelines or rocket cases. The mechanical behavior of these structures is typically different from those of flat laminated structures due to an alternating lay-up sequence, winding tension and manufacturing induced imperfections. However, design and analysi...
The Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is an effective tool to save time and costs in the development phase of engineering disciplines. Thus the dimensioning can easily be tested and adapted with a simulation instead of expensive experiments. Manufacturing and testing of fiber-reinforced plastic components is very extensive because of their specific mat...
Nowadays, there are hardly any structures without joints. On this occasion connections of composite materials with metallic components depict a particular challenge in the structural design. Bolted joints pose a significant weak point in the composite structure because of the strength step from composite to metal and the notch effect of the bolt ho...
