1 A JokeA group of managers were given the assignment to measure the height of A flagpole. So they go out to the flagpole with ladders and tape measures, and they're falling off the ladders, dropping the tape measures - the whole thing is just a mess. An engineer comes along and sees what they're trying to do, walks over, pulls the flagpole out of the ground, lays it flat, measures it from end to end, gives the measurement to one of the managers and walks away. After the engineer has gone, one manager turns to another and laughs. "Isn't that just like an engineer! We're looking for the height and he gives us the length!"
2 ADVANCED COMPOSITES Lecture 3 The modern advanced composites began with Boron filamentsBoron provide high E not provided by glass:B: σ= 400 ksi E=65 msi ρ= 2.24 g/ccGl: σ= ksi E=10-12 msiρ= 2.5 g/ccBoron provide E required by many aircraftIn 1960’s Boron incorporated intoF-15 and F-14
4 Major Materials Major Resin Major Reinforcement Fibers 1- Thermosets Glass – E, S and S1Aramid: Kevlar 49, Kevlar 29Carbon/ GraphiteBoronOther fibers:AluminaSilicon CarbideAlumina- Boria-SilicaBoron NitrideBoron CarbideTitanium DiborideMajor Resin1- ThermosetsEpoxiesPolyester (Thermosets)Vinyl EstersPolyimidesPhenolics2- ThermoplasticsNylonPolycarbonatePolyesters (thermoplastics)
5 Geometrical AspectsAdvanced Composites are made up of layers, piles, lamina or laminate.0º (Unidirectional) is the starting pointProperties are dependent of:Fiber diameterFiber lengthFiber length distributionVolume Fraction of fiber (Vf)Alignment and packing of fiber
6 Hex vs. Square Vf is Volume of fibers The max Vf occurs when fibers are touching.For optimum properties, maximize Vf without fiber to fiber contact (why?)Vc= Wc/ρc, Vr= Wlost/ρrVf= Wresidue/ρfVc= Vr+ Vf + (Vvoids)
8 Can affect properties: 0° Tension -- little effectCompression– significantEnvironmental – significantFatigue – significantDelamination – significantImpact resistance – significant(Rule of mixture for unidirectional modulus)
9 Standard Code Elements Each lamina is denoted by a number representing its orientation separated by a slashAdjacent laminate with the same angle by a numerical subscript.The laminate are listed in sequence from face to the other with bracketsAdjacent lamina of the same are denoted by a numerical subscriptA subscript T to the bracket indicates the total lamiate is shown(0/ 45/ 90) → (50/40/ 10) means 50 % 0’s, 40 % 45’s, 10% 90’s.
10 Positive and Negative Angles Lamina of the same angle but opposite in sign, + and – are used. Positive angles are assumed clockwise looking toward the layup tool surface
11 Positive and Negative Angles Symmetric laminaStart at the face but stop at the symmetry. The subscript S indicates that only one-half of the laminate is shownLong FormThe latter is preferred because it can accommodate more numbers
12 Symmetric of Odd Numbers If odd laminate has additional of the same angle adjacent to the center lamina, a subscript is used with the overlined to indicate the number of “half lamina either side of the center.Is the same as the even number of lamina except the center lamina listed last is overlined indicating that one half of it lies on either sides.

16 F-2210 F-22 has been made so far. They are under testing and evaluation. By mid of 2005, 3 F-22 a month will be made. Bush requested 24 additional jets by the end of 2005.About 25% by wieght of F-22 is made of composites including carbon/epoxy. All the exterior skin is made of carbon fiber/bismaleimade (BMI) produced by automatic tape laying.
17 Unmanned Helicopter TAG-M65 and TAG-M80 New unmanned helicopter is being made for tactical high risk missions. They are made of carbon/ epoxy prepregs, hand layed up in open mold. It can be carried by a foot soldier. Total length is 182 cm for M65 and the M80is about 15% longerIt can carry up to 20 kg load for 8 hours. It carries a Sielent Eye cost less than $ 15,000
