RESEARCH STAY OF JORDI LLOBET IN AALBORG (DENMARK)

Make the most of a research stay: That is what Jordi Llobet did in the University of Aalborg (Denmark) under the supervision of Dr. Esben Lindgaard. Three months till June 1 were invested in developing a numerical application to couple the damage occurring inside the laminate plies and at the interfaces under static and fatigue loadings. The experience of the Aalborg team in the wind turbine sector, played a crucial role in the implementation of a similar model for aerospace applications.

Research stay information
Supervisor name(s) (Home University): Pere Maimí
Supervisor name(s) (Foreign University): Esben Lindgaard (University of Aalborg)
Research stay period: 3 months (01/03/2018-01/06/2018)
Contribution information
Title of work performed during research stay:: A coupled fatigue model to account for INTRA and INTER laminar damage in composite laminates
Summary: During the course of the stay, a numerical to couple the damage occurring inside the laminate plies and at the interfaces were developed to account for static and fatigue loadings.

The experience of the computational group in Aalborg in modelling delamination damage under fatigue loadings applied to the wind turbine sector, has been a crucial help during the implementation of a similar model for aerospace applications.
