This unique volume presents the latest developments in the field of advanced woven and braided textile composites, with particular emphasis on computational approaches (finite elements, meshfree). Advanced textile composites such as woven, braided, knitted and stitched fabrics are increasingly being used as structural materials in industrial applications due to their efficiency at reinforcing more directions within a single layer and their ability to conform to surfaces with complex curvatures. Furthermore, textile composites provide improved impact resistance, exceptional thermal, fatigue and corrosion resistance, as well as being easier and cheaper to handle and fabricate compared to UD composites. Topics covered in this book include: 2D and 3D plain, twill, satin woven and braided composites, micro-level and macro-level modelling, failure mechanisms, theoretical studies on cryogenic crack behaviour and the specific deformation modes of textile reinforcements, which include the kinematic and hypoelastic models. This book will be particularly relevant to professional engineers, graduate students and researchers interested in composite materials.

Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a relatively new and alternative way of non-destructive inspection (NDI). It is the process of implementing a damage detection and characterization strategy for composite structures. The basis of SHM is the application of permanent fixed sensors on a structure, combined with minimum manual intervention to monitor its structural integrity. These sensors detect changes to the material and/or geometric properties of a structural system, including changes to the boundary conditions and system connectivity, which adversely affect the system's performance. This book's primary focus is on the diagnostics element of SHM, namely damage detection in composite structures. The techniques covered include the use of Piezoelectric transducers for active and passive Ultrasonics guided waves and electromechanical impedance measurements, and fiber optic sensors for strain sensing. It also includes numerical modeling of wave propagation in composite structures. Contributed chapters written by leading researchers in the field describe each of these techniques, making it a key text for researchers and NDI practitioners as well as postgraduate students in a number of specialties including materials, aerospace, mechanical and computational engineering. Contents: Damage Detection and Characterization with Piezoelectric Transducers — Active Sensing (Z Sharif Khodaei and M H Aliabadi)Modeling Guided Wave Propagation in Composite Structures Using Local Interaction Simulation Approach (Yanfeng Shen and Carlos E S Cesnik)Design and Development of a Phased Array System for Damage Detection in Structures (Bruno Rocha, Mehmet Yildiz & Afzal Suleman)Degradation Detection in Composite Structures with PZT Transducers (Wiesław M Ostachowicz, Paweł H Malinowski & Tomasz Wandowski)Numerical Modelling of Wave Propagation in Composite Structures (Sourav Banerjee)SHM of Composite Structures by Fibre Optic Sensors (Alfredo Guemes)Impact Detection and Identification with Piezoceramic Sensors — Passive Sensing (Z Sharif Khodaei and M H Aliabadi) Readership: Researchers and NDI practitioners as well as postgraduate students in a number of specialties including materials, aerospace, mechanical and computational engineering.

Active Control of Aircraft Cabin Noise provides a bridge to fill the gap between robust control theory and practical applications of active noise control systems in aircraft cabin. Both the possibilities and limitations of structural solutions to enhance aircraft cabin comfort by reducing interior noise are discussed supported by a wide range of topics in engineering, from finite element modeling to multichannel adaptive feed-forward control, usually dealt separately in the literature. In addition, experimental noise attenuation results with passengers' subjective perceptions predicting the effects of cabin noise on comfort assessments is examined. Theoretical and experimental research is detailed enough to capture the interest of the non-expert in engineering who wishes to have an overview of some of the active noise control applications in aircraft. This book may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate and undergraduate students in aeronautical engineering, and would be an authoritative resource book for research into the subject. Contents:Aircraft Noise ControlFundamentals in Structural AcousticsTransmission of Sound through Multiple PartitionsAdaptive Control of Sound RadiationNoise-Reducing Smart WindowsActive Noise Control Experiments Readership: Researchers, advanced undergraduate and graduate students in aeronautical engineering. Key Features:Introduces theories to design piezoelectric-based smart systems for active control of noise and vibration in passenger aircraft cabins Considers sound transmission of normally and obliquely incident plane waves through homogeneous and unbounded double and triple panel partitions by using analytical and numerical toolsFocuses on comfort subjective response of passengers and predicts the associated benefits in comfort-related parameters perceived by passengersKeywords:Active Noise Control;Aircraft Cabin Noise;Smart Structures;Structural Acoustics;Sound Transmission;Passenger Comfort

Themethodologyfordesigninghigh-performancecompositestructuresisstill evo- ing. The complexity of the response of composite materials and the dif?culties in predicting the composite material properties from the basic properties of the c- stituents result in the need for a well-planned and exhaustive test program. The recommended practice to mitigate the technological risks associated with advanced composite materials is to substantiate the performance and durability of the design in a sequence of steps known as the Building Block Approach. The Building Block Approach ensures that cost and performance objectives are met by testing greater numbers of smaller, less expensive specimens. In this way, technology risks are assessed early in the program. In addition, the knowledge acquired at a given level of structural complexity is built up before progressing to a level of increased complexity. Achieving substantiation of structural performance by testing alone can be p- hibitively expensive because of the number of specimens and components required to characterize all material systems, loading scenarios and boundary conditions. Building Block Approachprogramscan achieve signi?cant cost reductionsby se- ing a synergy between testing and analysis. The more the development relies on analysis, the less expensive it becomes. The use of advanced computational models for the prediction of the mechanical response of composite structures can replace some of the mechanical tests and can signi?cantly reduce the cost of designing with composites while providing to the engineers the information necessary to achieve an optimized design.
