Abstract(s)The work presented herein is part of a project focused on the optimization of a carbon fibre reinforced epoxy matrix (CFRP) structure. The implemented process resorts to finite elements modelling in order to evaluate the performance of the analysed structure. To validate the finite elements model at the basis of the optimization process a scale model prototype of the composite structure was built and tested under similar loading conditions. The experimental results determined were then compared with those obtained from simulations of a built numerical model depicting the experimental set up and taken into account the mechanical and geometrical properties of the composite part, the used accessories, the interface between parts and production constraints.
