Dynamic soil-structure interaction (SSI) governs the transient response of many critical civil infrastructure and needs to be appropriately modelled when designing such structures.
Embedded Carbon Fibre Transition Zones for Metal-Composite Hybrid Joints
Dr C Worrall, Dr J Stein
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Driven by European Regulations (No. 443/2009) and the USA Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard, automotive and aerospace companies are increasingly looking to use carbon fibre composites to achieve up to 50% weight savings over metallic alternatives.
