Hybrid laminates. Industrialization for aircraft nose fuselage

Objective

The use of composites materials for aircraft design allows integrating other different
materials with non-structural functions thanks to the layered structure. This layered
structure offers the opportunity to embed damping interleaves in the CFRP laminate to
improve the vibroacoustic damping behavior of the structure. These multifunctional
structures will result in hybrid configurations which combine traditional CFRP laminate with
other materials such as rubbers or nanoparticles. Therefore hybrid configurations need to
be developed and compared with current structural solutions to quantify their improvement
in terms of weight savings or functionality improvement. This proposal plans to
manufacture curved (hybrid skin) panels stiffened with twisted stringers of different shape
section by co-curing in female curing tool in one-shot process. Curved panels
manufactured will be representative of the structure that conforms the nose fuselage
stiffened skin.
