Prototypes Htex

The HTex prototype which was chosen and designed is a pressure vessel for transportation applications with one-side or two-sided openings.

Result:
- Generation of 3D-CAD model and spatial geometry of pressure vessel;
- Preliminary set of design allowable established;
- FE-model for computer simulations created;
- Several evaluated alternatives for connection design (thread, flange, metal insert);
- Fibre lay-up alternatives that optimise trade-off between cost effective manufacturing and performance for different textile methods;
- Multifunctional in-liner concept (performing mandrel, consolidation bladder, sealing liner);
- Manufactured and tested first prototypes.
