Beyond Buckling: A Challenge for Aircraft Composite Structures

Bisagni, C. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a conference


Chiara will present her research on buckling and post-buckling behavior of composite panels. The research was supported by different European projects. The results show the possibility to allow composite panels to work in the post-buckling field during the operative life, moving up the design ultimate load near the collapse load in the next aircraft generation. A particular aspect is given by damage tolerance capabilities in the post-buckling conditions. The research performed on single stringer composite specimens, undergoing in collaboration with NASA Langley, will also be presented.
