  5. 5. Investigation and Simulation of the Heating Effects in Sandwich Cores During Vibrational Loading

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Jacob Langer; [2013]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : GKN Aerospace Engine Systems specializes in large load carrying static structuresfor aero engines and is, as part of a light weight strategy, developing design andmanufacturing technology to be able to complement the current metallic product offerwith composite fan guide vane structures. Fan vanes in modern engines are structuraland to meet the requirements for low weight in the aircraft industry, it is necessary todesign the vane as a sandwich structure. READ MORE
