  1. 1. Conceptual design and construction of a UAV wing structure

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI); KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Selma Rahman; Anujan Ranganathan; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This report presents the design of the wing structure for a UAV called Skywalker X8. A model of the UAV was given and analyzed to design a wing box structure that is twice the size of the current model, with "greener" technology and lightweight materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effect of Induction-Heat Post-Curing on Residual Stresses in Fast-Curing Carbon Fibre Reinforced Composites

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Mercedes Amelia Bettelli; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon Fibres Reinforced Polymer Composite; epoxy resins; cure behaviour; residual stress and shape distortions;

    Abstract : Manufacturing induced shape distortions is a common problem for composite materials. Due to the non-isotropic nature of carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) unavoidable deformations occur during part production. During fabrication of polymer composites, the material obtains its final shape at elevated temperatures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Simulation and Modelling of Injection Molded Components : Fiber Reinforced Polymers in Powertrain Mounts

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Hanna Jakobsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Material modelling; polymer composites; FRP; orthotropic; powertrain mount; vehicle engineering; Digimat; Material modellering; polymera kompositer; ortotropisk; motorupphängnig; Digimat;

    Abstract : Powertrain mounts' purpose is to mount the engine and the gearbox in the car. Besides that, it isolate the body from the powertrain movements and road excitation. The most common material in powertrain mounts bracket is aluminum but lately, fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) has been acting as a substitute for the aluminum. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling and simulations of window attachments for a surface warfare ship

    University essay from KTH/Flygdynamik

    Author : Mohammad Mekdadi; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In recent years it has been discovered that the window installations on the Visby class corvette are prone to break. The aim of this report is to perform a structural analysis of three different windowinstallations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Virtual characterization of composite materials for aero-engine components

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Facundo Masari; [2020]
    Keywords : Composite; simulation; multiscale; modelling; UD; NCF; prepreg; aerospace; engine;

    Abstract : Since its beginnings, the aerospace industry has been interested in lowering the weight of aircraft. Moving from performance and economic drivers to environmental design parameters, the weight has continuously been a major focus for this industry. READ MORE
