A second new test method has been standardized by ASTM for determining notch sensitivity of sandwich composites.
Glass-coated, amorphous microwires combine nanometer to micrometer diameters, enabling embedding into composites without degrading mechanical properties.
A recently standardized prepreg tack test method has been developed for use in material selection, quality control and adjusting cure process parameters for automated layup processes.
Accurate geometry modeling and equivalent material property approximations captured by WoundSim will play a role in improving COPV analyses.
While time consuming and somewhat subjective, the comparative assessment approach has been proven effective toward assessing composites test method equivalence.
Testing under the upper levels of the building block approach for composites design depends on the structure’s application and complexity.
Fraunhofer IGCV uses graph-based design language for fast creation of design variants and simultaneous evaluation of ecological and economic performance along the entire life cycle.
