Modelling the propagation Of composite panel damage
To make way for the aircraft of the future and respond to economic and environmental concerns, SEGULA Technologies is participating in a vast research programme launched by the European Commission.
The SARISTU (FPRD) collaborative project has brought together 64 major aerospace companies with the aim of designing the aircraft of the future by reducing structural weight, improving performance and reducing costs.
SEGULA Technologies has developed a method for demonstrating the effect of composite panel damage during compression and buckling. The group conducted a study on the consortium demonstrator (a complex composite panel) and introduced an innovation into the bonding models based on the damage demonstrated.
