Support for Decision Making in Design of Composite Laminated Structures. Part 1: Parametric Knowledge Model

The design process of laminated composites faces two challenges: the engineer designs the product and its morphology, but also, simultaneously, the material. The number of design solutions can be huge since the solution space is very large.

Support for Decision Making in Design of Composite Laminated Structures. Part 2: Reduced Parametric Model-Based Optimization

The design process of laminated composites faces two challenges: the engineer designs the product and its morphology, but also, simultaneously, the material. The number of design solutions can be huge since the solution space is very large.

Stability Analysis of Composite Columns under Eccentric Load

Short thin-walled CFRP columns with channel section were investigated in this study. The tested columns were subjected to compressive load, both axial and eccentric. Eccentric load was applied in two mutually perpendicular directions. The scope of …

Destructive and Nondestructive Evaluation of Dry Spots in Thick Glass Fiber Reinforced Composites

This article reports on the destructive and nondestructive evaluation of dry spots or patches in thick unidirectional glass/epoxy laminates. Dry spots in composites can act as weak regions potentially resulting in catastrophic failure if …

About this journal

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.
