Failure Modeling of Thermoplastic Butt-Joint Stiffened Panels by Quasi-Static Loading

Abstract

In this work the quasi-static response of thermoplastic butt-joint stiffened beam in bending conditions is modeled. In these panels, the stiffener is connected to the skin by a shortfiber reinforced filler. Although this type of connection performs very well in a pull-off loading (fracture loading is 10 times higher than welded connection), optimization is… (More)
