Periodic Report - CERFAC (Cost effective reinforcement of fastener areas in composites)

Project ID: 266026
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


This is the periodic report for the CERFAC project which addressed many challenges faced in the growing use of composite structures and mainly the transfer of loads between composite parts through innovative designs for joining and assembly. The report covers the objectives and the results achieved so far.

There are several major outputs planned throughout the project. The first that gathers all the results from the project is the catalogue of reinforcement solutions at the locus of fastener holes (rivet holes, bolt holes) or edges leading to lighter, stronger and more damage tolerant designs. Predictive analysis methods and optimisation techniques supported by extensive testing will enable cost and weight efficient solutions. Images are included.
