Considerations of failure mechanisms in polymer matrix composites in the design of aerospace structures

T.K. Tsotsis,     The Boeing Company, USA

Abstract:

When designing with composites, it is important to consider their potential failure modes, especially delamination, when performing trade studies for different structural configurations and manufacturing approaches. Additionally, temperature extremes, moisture, and a variety of fluids that are common to aircraft fabrication and maintenance and prevention of damage from these are necessary in materials selection, design, and qualification. Other design considerations are the effects of fire, lightning, and electromagnetic radiation. Because of the wide variety of design drivers, it is ...
