Assessment of deformation requirements, extension of fatigue and damage tolerance methodologies
After having performed a thorough study on the state of the art concerning hybrid FML technology, the PhD candidate will address multiple research questions that in the end relate to a single engineering design challenge.
A method will be developed to assess deformation requirements for arbitrary FMLs containing different metallic constituents and thicknesses. In the second phase, this methodology will be extended to thermal loading, allowing prediction of the (cyclic) deformation of arbitrary thick FMLs containing various constituents. The limit of current fatigue and damage tolerance methodologies will be extended, while in the last stage the developed methods will be applied to a specific airframe design problem to demonstrate validity and applicability.
Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.
The Department of Aerospace Materials and Structures is dedicated to research on and development of structures and materials. The department consists of multiple groups that together cover the range from fundamental material science to full-scale structural component testing.
The Structural Integrity and Composites group focuses on the performance needs of future structures and products by intergrating design, safety, manufacturing, and maintenance. The group has a unique reputation in the field of fatigue of structures and materials, combined with expertise in structural hybrid/composite concept development and manufacturing for assuring structural integrity during all phases of the entire operational life.
