Hybrid laminates. Industrialization for aircraft nose fuselage (HYBRIA)
Start date: Mar 15, 2012, End date: Mar 14, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The use of composites materials for aircraft design allows integrating other differentmaterials with non-structural functions thanks to the layered structure. This layeredstructure offers the opportunity to embed damping interleaves in the CFRP laminate toimprove the vibroacoustic damping behavior of the structure. These multifunctionalstructures will result in hybrid configurations which combine traditional CFRP laminate withother materials such as rubbers or nanoparticles. Therefore hybrid configurations need tobe developed and compared with current structural solutions to quantify their improvementin terms of weight savings or functionality improvement. This proposal plans tomanufacture curved (hybrid skin) panels stiffened with twisted stringers of different shapesection by co-curing in female curing tool in one-shot process. Curved panelsmanufactured will be representative of the structure that conforms the nose fuselagestiffened skin.
