Manufacturing of Novel Embedded Metallic/ Carbon Fibre Reinforced Composite Joint Concepts
Cranfield University researched novel embedded structuraljoints under theEPSRC funded CIMComp programme. Experimental work within this research aimed to support development of manufacturing techniques for joints between metallic components with surface protrusions and carbon fibre composite (CFC) materials. This technical paper presents manufacturing concepts for different joint configurations, along with detailed information on pressing techniques, adhesive selection, protrusion geometries and pre-coupling techniques. The paper also presents results from the development and testing of structuralapplication demonstrator joints.
