Abstract

Current applications of composite materials have been focussing on the use in thin shells and continuous profiles, commonly being manufactured on the approach of a layered structure. The aim of this work was to evaluate the eligibility of a process based on compression moulded thermoplastic chopped tapes as a candidate to replace complex CNC machined metal parts for load introduction elements in aircrafts. Due to their discontinuous character, such materials are subject to scale effects, which are discussed in detail and interpreted in respect to the combination of failure modes leading to fracture.
