Flexural Experimental Analysis Coupled To An Acoustic Emission Study Of A Curved Sandwich Structures Made By Filament Winding Process
Composite sandwich structures studied in this paper were developed for a cylindrical tanks of vacuum vehicles using glass-fiber/vinylester composite facing and different types of foam cores like PET, PU and 3D woven Fabrics. The main objective of a designer is to choose the appropriate materials constituting the structure and determine the respective thicknesses of skins and foam in order to resist to bending moment, shear and axial stresses induced by forces applied to the material components. Generally, their study is based on the sandwich theory and the selection of materials having the appropriate properties, depending on its application. The work presented in this paper aims to characterize some of these lightweight structures in three and four points bending, followed simultaneously by acoustic emission control study to provide additional expertise elements. Finally, a failure analysis of sandwich structures is made to identify the different cracking modes of the different candidate materials.

Analytical and numerical study based on experimental investigation of different curved sandwich composites manufactured by filament winding process HADDAD, Mohamed; GUILLAUMAT, Laurent; TEREKHINA, Svetlana; CROZATIER, Mathilde (Sage, 2018)Sandwich structures, due to their high stiffness versus lightness ratio, are used progressively in high performance products. In order to design these structures with the most appropriate dimensions and material combinations, ...

(Springer Verlag, 2017)Purpose: Holmium:YAG laser is the most used laser for urolithiasis. Generally, we use metallic scissors to cut the fiber tip to restore its effectiveness. Many cleaving methods have been described to avoid fiber damage and ...
Multi-scale identification of elastic properties for anisotropic media through a global hybrid evolutionary-based inverse approach CAPPELLI, Lorenzo; MONTEMURRO, Marco; DAU, Frédéric; GUILLAUMAT, Laurent (Società Editrice Esculapio, 2017)One of the main issues of composite materials is related to the difficulty of characterising the full set of material properties at both mesoscopic and microscopic scales. Indeed, classical mechanical tests (traction/compression, ...
Mechanical behaviour and damage mechanisms analysis of a flax-fibre reinforced composite by acoustic emission MONTI, Arthur; EL MAHI, Abderrahim; JENDLI, Zouhaier; GUILLAUMAT, Laurent (Elsevier, 2016)This article presents the mechanical characterization of an eco composite consisting of a thermoplastic matrix reinforced by flax fibres. Different configurations of specimens were tested with uniaxial tensile loading and ...
CROZATIER, Mathilde; TEREKHINA, Svetlana; DAU, Frédéric; GUILLAUMAT, Laurent (2016)Mechanical behavior of composite laminates depends strongly on the manufacturing process. It is necessary to use representative samples of the material, and therefore of the process. In the case of filament winding, specimens ...
