project description

news & events

The use of composite materials as principal structural elements in an aircraft requires the complete understanding of their mechanical properties. In particular, when the structure is subjected to high frequency loading conditions (low and high energy impacts) phenomena as wave propagation, strain rate dependences, delaminations and rupture need to be fully understood.

In the CRASHING project, the state-of-the-art in multiscale simulation of composites will be transferred to the current numerical tools used by the industry in the simulation of the mechanical behaviour of composite structures for aerospace applications. The project will be focused in composite materials currently used in aircraft innovative designs. In addition, new materials with potential application in the future will be assessed with respect to the database generated along the project.

The CRASHING project will run from April 2012, for two years.
