Numerical modelling of thermal decomposition processes and associated damage in carbon fibre composites

Abstract

Thermo-chemical degradation of Carbon Fibre Composite materials (CFCs) under intensive heat fluxes has been modelled. The model couples together heat diffusion, polymer pyrolysis with associated gas production and convection through partially decomposed CFCs, and changes in transport properties of the material due to the damage. The model has been verified… (More)
