This paper investigates the damage behavior of thermoset and thermoplastic fiber-reinforced composites. The specimens were subjected to low-velocity impacts (LVI) to produce barely visible impact damages (BVID). To compare the dependency of the matrix system and the laminate lay-up on the impact damage, four test series were set up. Therefore, lami...

Conference Paper
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...

Basalt fabric composite, with different twill wave reinforcements, i.e. twill 2/2 and twill 1/3, have been studied in this work by means of experimental tests and numerical finite element (FE) simulations. As fabric reinforcements show repeating undulations of warp and fill yarn, simple mixtures law cannot be applied. As a consequence, the mesoscop...

This paper describes the results of tensile tests and finite element (FE) calculations with representative volume elements (RVEs) of basalt fibre reinforced plastic with two different types of fabric reinforcements. As fabric reinforcements show repeating ondulations of warp and fill yarn, simple mixtures laws reach their limits. That is the reason...

The determination of the fibre volume content in fibre reinforced plastics is usually done by removing the matrix of a representative specimen after the material has been produced. For the removal of a polymeric matrix system two possibilities exist. The matrix can either be extracted chemically or thermally where the fibre reinforcement must not b...

Development of a Structure Health Monitoring System (SHM) which can monitor, evaluate and locate structural imperfections during flight. The aim is to give advice during flight for the flight crew and on ground for the maintanance team concerning the structural integrity of the aircraft.
Project
Development of a pedal electric cycle (pedelec), whose load-bearing structures should consist of lightweight materials like fiber-reinforced plastics to reduce weight. In addition, a multi-lane wheelbase to increase safety against overturning and the implementation of a recumbent bike concept. Realization of a closed roof for weather protection. The first prototypes should consist of recycled old bicycle parts to test the functionality of the frame concept.
Project
The goal of the project is to provide a reliable process chain for thermoplastic matrix load-bearing fiber composite structures. In addition to the component manufacturing process, laser beam welding serves as a connection technology. The variations of the weld seam widths should be reduced by a suitable process control, if possible even suppressed. In addition, a sustainable transfer of knowledge between the research institutions and the industry between the German and Czech partners is sought.
