Composite Structures extends the focus to all the entities that participate in the successful quest for safety and demonstrates how design, manufacturing, maintenance, (inspection), operation, and requirements (regulations) all are part of successful, safe innovation and necessary to assure safe flight through the life of the vehicle. It addresses the notion that safety is a function of time and that vigilant risk management is only successful if it includes all participating entities. It is a companion to the author's first volume, Composite Structure: Design, Safety and Innovation, published by Elsevier in June 2005. Eliminates an unacceptable 'gap' in the world of safety Represents a 'new' approach to designing, manufacturing, maintaining, operating and regulating composite airplane structures Written for professionals in the aerospace structural development arena whether in indusrty, academia or government

Aerospace structural design, especially for large aircraft, is an empirical pursuit dominated by rules of thumb and often-painful service experiences. Expertise on traditional materials is not transferable to “new materials, processes and structural concepts. This is because it is not based on or derived from well-defined measures of safety. This book addresses the need for safe innovation based on practical, explicit structural safety constraints for use in innovative structures of the future where guiding service experience is non-existent. The book covers new ground by the demonstration of ways to satisfy levels of safety by focusing on structural integrity; and complementing the lack of service experience with risk management, based on flexible inspection methods recognizing that safety is a function of time. Fundamentally the book shoes demonstrates how safety methods can be made available to the engineering community without requiring huge statistical databases to establish internal and external loads distributions for use in reliability analysis. An essential title for anyone working on structural integrity, or composite structures. It will be of equal interest to aerospace engineers and materials scientists working in academia, industry and government. Demonstrates a practically manageable way to produce safe innovation using composites in environments with no service experience New approach to a subject that has not previously been treated in a holistic manner This book could not have come at a more topical time, Boeing are currently launching the first commercial plane made entirely of composite materials The focus of this book is Composite Materials but other fields of innovation could be treated in the same manner

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) in Aerospace Structures provides readers with the spectacular progress that has taken place over the last twenty years with respect to the area of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). The widespread adoption of SHM could both significantly improve safety and reduce maintenance and repair expenses that are estimated to be about a quarter of an aircraft fleet’s operating costs. The SHM field encompasses transdisciplinary areas, including smart materials, sensors and actuators, damage diagnosis and prognosis, signal and image processing algorithms, wireless intelligent sensing, data fusion, and energy harvesting. This book focuses on how SHM techniques are applied to aircraft structures with particular emphasis on composite materials, and is divided into four main parts. Part One provides an overview of SHM technologies for damage detection, diagnosis, and prognosis in aerospace structures. Part Two moves on to analyze smart materials for SHM in aerospace structures, such as piezoelectric materials, optical fibers, and flexoelectricity. In addition, this also includes two vibration-based energy harvesting techniques for powering wireless sensors based on piezoelectric electromechanical coupling and diamagnetic levitation. Part Three explores innovative SHM technologies for damage diagnosis in aerospace structures. Chapters within this section include sparse array imaging techniques and phase array techniques for damage detection. The final section of the volume details innovative SHM technologies for damage prognosis in aerospace structures. This book serves as a key reference for researchers working within this industry, academic, and government research agencies developing new systems for the SHM of aerospace structures and materials scientists. Provides key information on the potential of SHM in reducing maintenance and repair costs Analyzes current SHM technologies and sensing systems, highlighting the innovation in each area Encompasses chapters on smart materials such as electroactive polymers and optical fibers

The contributions focus on the progress made in theoretical, numerical and experimental research, with special attention given to new concepts and algorithmic procedures, and to background knowledge as well as the development and implementation of rules and recommendations for codification worldwide. The keynote contributions are from: (1) J. Michael Rotter (University of Edinburgh, UK), on advances in the shell buckling phenomenon, which is of particular importance for industrial metal structures such as silos, tanks and vessels; (2) Milan Veljkovic (Lulea University, Sweden), on conceptual and design aspects of supporting structures for wind energy generation, which topic is related to the current worldwide discussion on the benefits of wind power in the light of high vulnerability of modern economies to changes in fuel prices and the imminent shortage of fossil resources; (3) Jiang Qian (Tongji Univeresity, China), on advances in seismic assessment and control of steel-concrete composite high-rise buildings; (4) Johan V. Rietief (University of Stellenbosch, South Africa), international efforts to harmonize and unify reliability-based codification within the area of civil engineering structures. Recent developments in metal and steel-concrete composite structures in Poland are summarized in the 5th and final keynote paper by Tomasz Siwowski (Rzeszów University of Technology, Poland) and Krzysztof Żółtowski (Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland), in which they describe advances in modern structural shaping, material engineering and technology, as well as in computation and design, using examples of recent, spectacular bridges and sporting venues in Poland. In addition to the five keynote papers the book contains 62 two-page extended abstracts of individual contributions delivered by 164 Authors and Co-authors from 13 countries of four continents. The CD containing all full-length papers is an attachment to the conference book. The individual papers cover a wide variety of topics: -Cold-formed sections and profiled sheeting - Steel-concrete composite structures - Buckling and effect of bracings - Dynamics, fatigue and seismic analyses - Bridges, Structural steel, metallurgy and behaviour in fire - Strength, stability and postbuckling behaviour - Joints and connections - Silos, tanks and vessels and - Reliability, masts and towers Recent Progress in Steel and Composite Structures is a useful reference source to academics, researchers, graduate students and practicing engineers.
