Prof. Ganguli has proposed powerful evolutionary optimization methods for the strength based design of composite box-beams (Kathiravan and Ganguli, Composite Structures, ) and has developed approaches for the design of low weight composites using different failure criteria (Sateesh et al, Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures, ).
Typical failure modes of composite blades were studied in the full-scale collapse tests,,,,,,,,,,, including geometric nonlinearity mainly characterized as local buckling and cross-sectional ovalization, i.e., the Brazier effect, and material failures such as fiber breakage, matrix damage, debonding and failure modes and failure behavior have also been.

device. The optimization algorithm is based on the Nedler-Mead Simplex Method and was used to determine the lay-ups providing the highest fundamental frequencies for a specific box-beam.
For the box-beam studied, the most detrimental vibration mode was wall squinting and the optimal lay-up involved high ply angles at the top and bottom of the.
This work addresses the optimum design of a composite box-beam structure subject to strength constraints. Such box-beams are used as the main load carrying members of helicopter rotor blades.

Ambur and Optimization of composite box-beam structures including the effects of subcomponent interaction. Experimental investigation  of composite box beams pointed out the probable failure mechanism is more likely that the failure of the box beam is buckling driven.
Due to the strong correlation. Full (%) interaction case Let us now assume that the beams are joined together by infinitely stiff shear connection along the face AB in Fig.
As slip and slip strain are now zero everywhere, this case is called “full interaction”. In this case the depth of the composite beam is 2h with a breadth b, so that I. AbstractThe analytical model applicable to calculate the equivalent stiffnesses of composite box beam has been refined.
The calculation of equivalent stiffness coefficients of composite laminated box beam is simplified and the connection between shear-deformable beam theory and classical laminate theory is established. The equivalent stiffness analytic formulas expressed by beam cross-section.
Supported Composite Beams for Strength” was one of the first two design booklets of the Composite Structures Design Manual, which is now being completed and maintained by OneSteel.
The initial development work required to produce the design booklets was carried out at BHP Melbourne Research Laboratories before its closure in May The ECC beam is instrumented with 32 copper electrodes mounted to the bottom face of the beam.
A section roughly cm long and cm wide is delineated in the center of the beam by the electrodes (Figure ).Twelve electrodes are attached along each of the long sides of this region, and four electrodes are attached on each of the shorter sides.

Optimization of an Orthotropic Composite Beam, MSC Thesis, Faculty of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hartford, Beyond a certain point the relatively lower stiffness of composite materials (include carbon fiber composites) requires a move away from rigid structures towards compliant structure design and the acceptance of significant deflections as ordinary behaviour, either through pre-deformed geometry or load reducing deformations.

From the above, for the carbon–epoxy box beam under torsional load without external restraint the following conclusions can be drawn: 1. For model I and model II, they have the same shear stress flow q for model I, (α 16) r =0 which results in (ε x) r =0 so the composite box beam is in the state of free the other hand, it is noticeable that different from free torsional.
