Detection and Evaluation of Pre-Preg Gaps and Overlaps in Glare Laminates

Gaps and overlaps between pre-preg plies represent common flaws in composite materials that can be introduced easily in an automated fibre placement manufacturing process and are potentially detrimental for the mechanical performances of the final …


Design and Optimization of Composite Automotive Hatchback Using Integrated Material-Structure-Process-Performance Method

The application of polymer composites as a substitution of metal is an effective approach to reduce vehicle weight. However, the final performance of composite structures is determined not only by the material types, structural designs and …


Path Planning Based on Ply Orientation Information for Automatic Fiber Placement on Mesh Surface

This article introduces an investigation of path planning with ply orientation information for automatic fiber placement (AFP) on open-contoured mesh surface. The new method makes use of the ply orientation information generated by loading …


Numerical Investigation of Delamination in Drilling of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites

Drilling of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) is a challenging task in modern manufacturing sector and machining induced delamination is one of the major problems affecting assembly precision. In this work, a new three-dimensional (3D) finite …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Applied Composite Materials is an international journal dedicated to the publication of original full-length papers, review articles and short communications of the highest quality that advance the development and application of engineering composite materials. Its articles identify problems that limit the performance and reliability of the composite material and composite part; and propose solutions that lead to innovation in design and the successful exploitation and commercialization of composite materials across the widest spectrum of engineering uses. The main focus is on the quantitative descriptions of material systems and processing routes.

Coverage includes management of time-dependent changes in microscopic and macroscopic structure and its exploitation from the material's conception through to its eventual obsolescence.
