  • Hadjiloizi, Demetra A.; Weaver, Paul M. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics:AIAA, 2018)
    The asymptotic homogenization technique has been used to analyze a wing box structure consisting of trapezoidally arranged reinforcements encased within thin rectangular plates. Ignoring stress concentration effects at ...
  • Oliveri, Vincenzo; Peeters, Daniël; Clancy, Gearóid J.; Jones, David; O'Higgins, Ronan M.; Weaver, Paul M. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics: AIAA, 2018)
    Manufacture of high performance large composite aerostructures in an out-of-autoclave process using thermoplastic composites that is cost-effective is highly attractive and, at the same time, technologically challenging. ...
  • Telford, Robert; Peeters, Daniël; Oliveri, Vincenzo; Zucco, Giovanni; Jones, David; O'Higgins, Ronan M.; Weaver, Paul M. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics: AIAA, 2018)
    Variable stiffness composites are exciting emerging structures capable of improving structural performance through tailored load redistribution. This technology is particularly relevant to aerospace structures, such as ...
  • Bandaru, Aswani Kumar; Clancy, Gearóid J.; Peeters, Daniël; O'Higgins, Ronan M.; Weaver, Paul M. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics: AIAA, 2018)
    Laser-Assisted Tape Placement (LATP) is an advanced manufacturing process which has gained the attention of the aerospace industry. Composite laminates manufactured using this technique have to be characterized effectively ...
  • Wu, Zhangming; Raju, Gangadharan; Weaver, Paul M. (Elsevier, 2018)
    Variable angle tow (VAT) laminates that generally exhibit variable stiffness properties not only provide extended design freedom, but also offer beneficial stress distributions. In this paper, the prospect of VAT composite ...
  • Liguori, Francesco; Zucco, Giovanni; Madeo, Antonio; Magisano, Domenico; Leonetti, Leonardo; Garcea, Giovanni; Weaver, Paul M. (Elsevier, 2019)
    The stiffness-tailoring capability of Variable Angle Tow (VAT) laminates gives enhanced freedom to design thin-walled structures. One key advantage of tow steering is the ability to redistribute stresses improving buckling ...
  • Zucco, Giovanni; Oliveri, Vincenzo; Peeters, Daniël; Telford, Robert; Clancy, Gearóid J.; McHale, Ciaran; Rouhi, Mohammad; O'Higgins, Ronan M.; Young, Trevor M.; Weaver, Paul M. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics: AIAA, 2018)
    The proof of an aircraft’s structural integrity and safety is typically provided by analysis and supported by structural test evidence. The experimental test of a wingbox, which is the main structural component of a wing, ...
  • Clancy, Gearóid J.; Peeters, Daniël; Oliveri, Vincenzo; O'Higgins, Ronan M.; Jones, David; Weaver, Paul M. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics: AIAA, 2018)
    The weight saving benefits of fiber-reinforced composite materials in structural applications are well established. However, there is an increasing requirement to develop processing techniques that can produce highly ...
