  1. 1. Compression moulding of thermoplastic composite sandwich components

    Author : Malin Åkermo; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates various aspects of compressionmoulding of sandwich components with thermoplastic-basedcomposite faces and thermoplastic or thermoset core.Compression moulding of glass/polypropylene (PP) faces toexpanded PP core is initially experimentally investigated usinga statistical experimental design approach.

  2. 2. Towards defect free forming of multi-stacked composite aerospace components using tailored interlayer properties

    Author : Per Hallander; Malin Åkermo; Pascal Hubert; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Carbon Fibre; Composites; Prepreg; Forming; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik;

    Abstract : Use of lightweight materials is an important part of reduction of fuel consumption by commercial aircraft. A considerable number of structural aircraft parts are therefore built of thin layers of epoxy pre-impregnated carbon fibres stacked to laminates. READ MORE

  3. 3. An Experimental Investigation of Shape Distortions in Aerospace Composites : Du som saknar dator/datorvana kan kontakta [email protected] för information

    Author : Erik Hörberg; Malin Åkermo; Stefan Hallström; Patrik Fernberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik;

    Abstract : Composite materials are increasingly used in primary structure of modern commercial aircraft. Its excellent material characteristics enables reduction of structural weight compared to traditional metal solutions and thereby offers reduction of fuel consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

  4. 4. Processing of self-reinforced poly(ethylene terephthalate) composites for automotive applications

    Author : Lars Jerpdal; Malin Åkermo; Hans-Peter Heim; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : The vehicles of the future must have less negative environmental impact during their use phase than the vehicles of today in order to avoid major climate change on earth. Consequently electric vehicles are currently under development with the purpose of reducing CO2 emissions when the vehicle isdriven. READ MORE

  5. 5. Technical cost modelling and efficient design of lightweight composites in structural applications

    Author : Mathilda Karlsson Hagnell; Malin Åkermo; Dan Zenkert; Gerhard Ziegmann; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technical cost modelling; composite materials; carbon fibre; lightweight design; optimization; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : A lightweight transport design reduces fuel costs and emissions and can be achieved through the use of fibre-reinforced composite materials. Although lightweight, the composite raw material can be expensive and the sequential component production challenging and costly. READ MORE
