  2. 2. Affordable reconfigurable assembly tooling : an aircraft development and manufacturing perspective

    Author : Henrik Kihlman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Industry has changed in recent years. Increased globalization has led to a situation where few manufacturers build their own complete products "in-house". This situation is no different in the aerospace industry. In fact, aircraft manufacturers who build their complete aircraft in­ house are uncommon today. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Subscale Flight Testing : Applications in Aircraft Conceptual Design

    Author : Alejandro Sobron; Petter Krus; David Lundström; Zdobyslaw Goraj; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Downscaled physical models, also referred to as subscale models, have played an essential role in the investigation of the complex physics of flight until the recent disruption of numerical simulation. Despite the fact that improvements in computational methods are slowly pushing experimental techniques towards a secondary role as verification or calibration tools, real-world testing of physical prototypes still provides an unmatched confidence.

  4. 4. Tooling and processing for efficient and high tolerance prepreg composite manufacturing

    Author : Tommy Grankäll; Malin Åkermo; Per Hallander; Simon Bickerton; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tooling; Composite Manufacturing; Mould; Cure tool; Hot-forming; Compensation; Moisture; Shape distortion; Flyg- och rymdteknik; Aerospace Engineering;

    Abstract : Composite use is normally motivated in aircraft design by improved weight-specific mechanical properties as compared to metals. However, fatigue and dielectric properties may also be critical for material selection. READ MORE

  5. 5. Technical development of the laser welding process

    Author : Klas Nilsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Manufacturing Systems Engineering; Produktionsutveckling;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the technical development of the laser welding process and presents the results from a number of experimental investigations. The seven papers that make up the thesis investigate various aspects of the technical development of the laser welding process mechanism as well as industrial applications. READ MORE
