Impact Damage Tolerance of a composite laminate
Composite laminates are sometimes exposed to external mechanical impacts, which can significantly change their structure and reduce their strength.
The TOLDO project aims to simulate the behaviour of carbon/glass hybrid composite structures after an impact such as a tool drop or bird strike.
SEGULA Technologies has developed a digital model to simulate the damage caused by an impact. This model has been validated by experiments. As a result, digital solutions were developed in order to improve damage tolerance.
