If you missed the last JEC Europe 2012 in Paris here is the opportunity to purchase the proceedings of the Composite Design Conference in pdf format.

 

Innovations to increase toughness and reliability of composites:

 

Key Focus

  • Totally new Non-Crimp Fiber to facilitate design and manufacturing
  • Tools for every engineer to optimize structures

 

Composites Design (innovations to increase toughness and reliability of Composites)

 

  • Totally new Non-Crimp Fiber tofacilitate design and manufacturing
  • Tools for every engineer to optimize structures

 

This conference brings together several truly world-class experts in composite materials from modeling of delamination to unmatched tools for preliminary design of blades and wings and uncertainty estimation. These methods and tools are applicable to composites structures in general and bi-angle NCF in particular. A totally new approach to designing and automated tape laying of structures with weight and cost reduction can be achieved with NCF that is receiving the attention of many forward-thinking designers. Meeting in person with these leading experts is a rare opportunity. This conference is unique in that tools are offered including the pioneering Composites App for iPad free to all interested participants.

Totally new Non-Crimp Fiber to facilitate design and manufacturing

 

1 - Advanced NCF for unprecedented weight savings

 

Chomarat Group

Philippe Sanial, Group R&D Director
  • Bi-angle thin-ply NCF lead to anisotropic, homogenized laminates
  • A variety of NCF with thick-thin plies, variable angles, and hybrids (Carbon, Glass)
  • Our NCF handles like fabric but has strength comparable with unitape
 

2 - Stiffness and strength measurements of thin-ply NCF

 

NASA Marshall Space Flight Center

Alan T. Nettles, Ph.D. Virginia Tech Composite Materials Engineer
  • Stiffness and strength of bi-angle and [π/4] thin-ply NCF
  • NCF data are competitive with laminates from unitape
  • Opportunity in simultaneous weight and cost reduction
 

3 - Bi-angle thin-ply NCF for automated tape laying

 

MAG IAS, LLC
James R. Hecht, Director, Composite Application Engineering – Aerospace
 
Santa Clara University
Dr. T. Kim Parnell, Adjunct Professor - Santa Clara University & Principal - Parnell Engineering & Consulting (PEC)
  • One or two axis layup of customized NCF provide new design options
  • Discontinuity seams of off-axis plies can be engineered to reduce their effects
  • NCF tapes for flat and curved panels can reduce weight, cost, and fabrication time
 

Tools for every engineer to optimize structures

 

4 - Structural integrity of thin ply laminates

University of Girona

Prof. Josep Costa, Professor and principal investigator of the AMADE Research Group
  • Advantages of thin ply laminates on delamination resistance
  • Delay of the onset of ply failure using thin plies
  • Design tools for laminates manufactured with thin plies
 

5 - Innovative design procedure for large scale wind turbine blades

 

Hanyang University

Dr. Sung K. Ha, Ph.D. Stanford University, Professor Mechanical Engineering
  • Wind turbine blade preliminary design with simple tool
  • NCF offers unique material and processing opportunities
  • Straight versus curved blade design
  • Micromechanics-based fatigue life prediction

 

6 - Composites failure criteria with uncertainty quantification and estimation of A- and B- basis for design

 

National Institute of Standards & Technology

Dr. Jeffrey T. Fong, Ph.D. Stanford University, Adjunct Research Professor, Drexel University, Physicist and Project Manager (NIST)
  • Review of composite failure criteria
  • Plane stress tensile failure criteria
  • Uncertainty quantification using error propagation formulas
  • Estimation of A- and B- allowables using software DATAPLOT
