Composite Fibre Reinforced Plastic Structures

Kevin Chan Examples 0 Comments

Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) and other high strength composite materials offer designers a wide range of performance benefits. However, a major barrier to the use such materials is the cost and complexity of inspection. PZFlex is capable of simulating ultrasonic wave propagation through complex CFRP laminates, allowing new inspections to be developed more rapidly. The complex CFRP weave is …

2D Fibre Composite Inspection

Kevin Chan Examples 0 Comments

Performing spot NDE inspections on large structures can be time consuming and can miss critical defects. The use of Lamb modes is an efficient method of inspecting large, thin structures such as skins. Fibre reinforced composites are used extensively in aerospace applications and exhibit greater complexity with Lamb mode propagation than typical isotropic materials. The 2D models simulate the generation …
