University of Bristol Department of Aerospace Engineering FATIGUE LIFE PREDICTION FOR COMPOSITE MATERIALS - A NEW APPROACH:  University of Bristol Department of Aerospace Engineering FATIGUE LIFE PREDICTION FOR COMPOSITE MATERIALS - A NEW APPROACH Mostefa Bourchak, Dr Ian Farrow, Dr Ian Bond Current Fatigue Assessment For Composites:  Current Fatigue Assessment For Composites There is no generally applicable and reliable fatigue life prediction method available for fatigue of CFRP under spectrum loading. Instead use: Conservative static design @ low stress/strain levels for static notch/impact allowables Conservative test validation hot/wet cycling damage tolerance demonstration Classical Approach:  Classical Approach Three stages: Load Cycle History Idealisation Aircraft load history monitoring and idealisation Counting methods Spectrum representation exceedence curves Standard load spectra Summary of load history idealisation Data Manipulation Cyclic data manipulation & empirical constant life diagrams Damage Accumulation Cumulative damage rule (as before) OR Property degradation e.g. RESIDUAL STIFFNESS, RESIDUAL STRENGTH “wear-out”, PROBABILISTIC... Classical Approach:  Unconservative Classical Approach Typical Results Classical fatigue analysis prediction for carbon-fibre composites.

New Approach Damage Event Definition:  Damage Event Definition Mix Events E.g. Significant increasing +ve or decreasing -ve events Slide8:  Damage Event Definition Account for mix - methodology based on 2-block base data e.g. by R ratio, severity, sm & sa Investigation of significant damage events by thermal transient monitoring Slide9:  ‘Mix’ Event Slide10:  Effect of Cycle Mixing Slide11:  Effect of Cycle Mixing Slide12:  Test S-N data Constant life fitting +++ + + + S N ** ** * ** + ++ +++ ++ R m a +  Data Manipulation + Mix S-N data Damage Accumulation:  Damage Accumulation e.g. D = {A(ni / Ni) + B(ni/Ni)C} N = total of applied cycles when D = {A(ni / Ni) + B(ni/Ni)C} = Df dD = f(m, a, D) dN N =  dD  f(m, a, D) f Fatigue Life Prediction:  Fatigue Life Prediction Current UoB Activities:  “Fatigue Life Prediction For Fibre Reinforced Plastics Under Complex Loading” EPSRC/AWHL/DAP CASE Studentship £60k over 3 yrs 1. Damage event characterisation ‘Mix’ counting algorithm (FALSTAFF,TWIST, HELIX etc.) Investigate damage event transient wear-in states by thermal/p.d./acoustic monitoring Flexural testing of “damage feature” specimens, modified lathe (>10Hz) Laminate specimens with ply drop, fibre wrinkle, tow break 2. Prediction methodology verification Two-block testing to complement AWHL/DAP programmes Assess prediction method (FALSTAFF,TWIST, HELIX etc.) Computer controlled servo-hydraulic test machine (100kN, <5Hz) Standard in-plane specimens (e.g. CRAG type) with ply drop, fibre wrinkle, tow break Current UoB Activities Summary:  Summary (Currently!) No reliable, generally applicable method of predicting fatigue response for any situation/application. Fatigue = primary design issue More efficient designs@higher stress/strain levels  Need for reliable fatigue life prediction UoB new approach: Damage event definition within a load-time history  Experimental evidence of ‘mix’ effect on fatigue life  Significant improvement in predictive accuracy
