Testing and Analysis of Hybrid Composite/Metal Connections and Hull Section for the MACH Project ( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report summarizes the development, testing and analysis of hybrid composite/metal connections and hybrid structural systems under the Modular Advanced Composite Hullform (MACH) project. The MACH project, funded by the Office of Naval Research, is part of a joint effort between the University of Maine, Navatek of Honolulu, HI, and Applied Thermal Sciences (ATS) of Sanford, Maine, and is performed in conjunction with the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Carderock, MD (NSWCCD). The primary motivation for the work summarized herein is to provide alternatives to conventional hull construction techniques and conventional hull forms by using modular hybrid construction methods. Included is a description of tests performed on sub-scale hybrid bolted connections, where the objective was to develop watertight connections for removable panels. An experimental study was conducted to quantify the performance of numerous hybrid joints with various geometries, loaded in flexure. The test results showed that for resisting bending loads, joints with doubler plates can be made stronger and rotationally stiffer than standard bolted joints, while also mitigating opening of the joint, thereby improving the ability to seal the connection for watertight integrity

Effect of Temperature and Viscoelastic Creep on the Clamp-Up Load in Hybrid Composite/Metal Bolted Joints ( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Hybrid composite to metal bolted joints are the focus of much research due the inherent advantages that they present. In particular, they are very attractive to designers and engineers alike due to their simplicity and ease of disassembly. However, hybrid connections are particularly susceptible to metal fatigue, stress relaxation primarily due to viscoelastic creep of the composite, thermal effects due to coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch, galvanic corrosion between the dissimilar constituents of the joint and moisture absorption causing differential strain between the metal and composite. The study presented in this report focuses in an investigation of the effects of temperature and primary creep in hybrid metal to composite bolted connections. The study's relevance stems from the desire to apply this technology to naval applications, where watertight integrity must be maintained. It was then decided to examine this type of connection at the subcomponent level. Therefore, EGlass/vinyl ester plates!4" thick were bolted to aluminum and steel plates of the same thickness with instrumented steel bolts to determine the primary stress relaxation response. Special attention was placed on the effects of temperature change on the stress relaxation that hybrid connections are particularly susceptible from. A model was developed with the sole purpose of integrating the existing coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch between all the joint parts in the scheme of analysis. Experiments were carried out to obtain the CTE of the composite material used in the hybrid connection tests, and a computer program, GASmooth, was specifically written to correct the thermal effects on the stress relaxation data
Detection of Bolt Stress Relaxation in Hybrid Bolted Connections ( file )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The effort summarized in this report focuses upon real time detection of stress relaxation in bolted connections in hybrid structures. A proof-of-concept test bed for this effort consists of a 24-1/2 inch square plate made of Eglass/vinyl ester composite. Several interrogation techniques were employed and compared including: 1) low frequency modal analysis; 2) high frequency transfer functions and 3) high frequency transmittance functions. Each of these techniques employed a piezoelectric actuator bonded to the panel so to deliver a characterized disturbance in a controlled manner. The technique using transmittance functions to evaluate changes in bolt tensioning level shows the most promise

Design Optimization and Fatigue Analysis of Laser Stake Welded Connections ( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report summanzes research on the design and fatigue analysis of laser-stake welded connections performed at the University of Maine from January 2006 to December 2007 for the Structural Response of Hybrid Ship Connections Subjected to Fatigue Loads (HSCF) project. Laser welding is a maturing technology that can be used to fabricate metal/composite hybrid connections wherein modular composite panels with embedded steel inserts are welded to a steel ship hull. The static and fatigue response of continuous laser welded steel connections for ship structures has been analyzed using finite element techniques. The stress analyses, which are based on the principles of linear elastic fracture mechanics, will enable engineers to design robust laser welded lap joints for prescribed loads. It is found that the overlap length. weld width and plate thicknesses play a major role in determining joint strength under different loading conditions. The fatigue response of laser welded lap joints is also investigated for different weld geometries and loading conditions using a fracture specific finite element program FRANC2D. It is found that the weld width has a significant effect on the crack trajectory and fatigue life of the joint

Finite Element Analyses and Experimental Testing of Hybrid Composite/Metal Joints Subjected to Fully Reversed Flexure Fatigue Loading ( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The goal in this research is to accurately assess the fatigue life of hybrid composite/metal connections focusing upon bolted joints used in removable panels. Experimental testing was performed in flexure fatigue as part of this effort and is essential for fatigue life evaluation. In addition, analytical studies were performed using finite element analysis. Existing finite element modeling software offers a robust method for assessing the structural integrity of proposed hybrid connections. Ansys, a finite element modeling program, was used to study the response of two hybrid connection configurations subjected to fully-reversed flexure fatigue loading. A through-the-thickness stress investigation at critical locations in the connection was developed. Variables in the hybrid connection were altered in a parametric study and effects on flexibility and stress were observed. Through the use various models, a method for predicting the fatigue life in hybrid joints is proposed
Analysis and Testing of a Tapered End Connection for Laser Welded Steel Sandwich Panels ( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
14. ABSTRACT This report summarize the analysis and cyclic testing of a laser welded steel sandwich panel end connection. Also included are monotonic tests of stake welded lap shear coupons with welds oriented both longitudinally and transverse. Steel sandwich panels offer substantial resistance to static and dynamic loads due to their high stiffness and substantial energy absorbing capacity. Panels of this kind are interest of potential use in ships and are especially efficient in resisting extreme events such as impact or shock loading. This research is conducted to investigate the mechanical behavior of a tapered steel sandwich panel end connection using finite element analysis techniques and experimental test methods. A verification study, performed comparing finite element analysis and an analytical model to an experimental study documented in the literature, demonstrates good agreement between the approaches. Finite element analyses are employed to study the response of a laser welded steel sandwich panel tapered end connection designed specifically for use in an aircraft hangar door. Performance of this connection is verified with experimental test procedures to demonstrate that the connection has adequate strength and the failure location is outside the connection region. Photogrammetry techniques are used to visualize the mechanical response. Static tests of the stake weld in a lap-shear configuration provide quantification of the weld resistance per unit length
Influence of Stress Relaxation in Hybrid Composite/Metal Bolted Connections ( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An experimental investigation of the influence of stress relaxation on watertight integrity of hybrid composite-to-metal bolted connections is presented. This study focuses on the effects of bolt reloading, use of tapered-head bolts versus protruding-head bolts, and briefly addresses environmental effects. All tests were conducted for a time period of at least three months, in order to estimate primary and secondary stress relaxation effects. The reloading tests show that some of the preload in the connections can be maintained with periodic retightening of the bolts. In a limited amount of testing it was observed that temperature shifts caused more rapid stress relaxation rates. Little difference in relaxation was observed when comparing tapered-head bolts with protruding-head bolts, given that roughly equal stress relaxation rates were observed. Further research on this area is required
Development of a cavitation erosion resistant advanced material system by Kendrick H Light( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Advancements in both the design and construction of high-speed naval vessels have necessitated the evaluation of the building materials in a cavitating environment. Given their weight advantages, construction materials are often either aluminum or glass reinforced polymer (GRP) composites. Historically, neither of these materials has performed well in a cavitating environment. The objective of this effort was to evaluate cavitation erosion protection alternatives for a GRP composite structure used in a cavitating environment. Screening of the various design alternatives was done using the ASTM 032 vibratory induced cavitation test method and a relative ranking of each protection system was generated. Results from the testing show that a GRP composite system can be designed to greatly increase the cavitation erosion resistance of the material, but this resistance remains below common metallic materials. A solution identified during this study involves the use of durable elastomer materials as the protection mechanism
