Damage propagation in composite material
Identifying failure mechanisms in composites is important because damage often remains largely invisible externally until late in the testing process. Research using X-ray and CT technology help gain a better understanding of the failure mechanisms and develop mathematical formulae describing the degrading performance characteristics. Research aims at developing and exploiting in-situ rigs that allow multi-mode stressing to be applied on composite samples – a keen interest of international aerospace companies.
