Composite crashworthy structures : manufacture and modelling

thesis
posted on 2006-01-01, 00:00 authored by Michael. Silcock
This study presents an innovative finite element delamination model which successfully reproduced the experimental failure behaviour observed in axial crush testing. Tests were conducted on tubes manufactured by a novel composite curing process, resulting in the ability to cure tubular profiles in 7 minutes - 95% quicker than traditional autoclave curing.
