Consolidation-driven defect generation in thick composite parts



This repository contains numerical simulation data from a study on the influence of consolidation on defect severity in thick composite laminates. It was conducted at the University of Bristol under under the EPSRC funded research grant: Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Composites project “Defect Generation Mechanisms in Thick and Variable Thickness Composite Parts – Understanding, Predicting and Mitigation (DefGen)", (grant reference no. EP/I033513/1).

The data is in support of the paper "Consolidation-driven defect generation in thick composite parts" by Jonathan P.-H. Belnoue, Oliver J. Nixon-Pearson, Adam J. Thompson, Dmitry S. Ivanov, Kevin D. Potter and Stephen R. Hallett, published in the Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering (DOI: 10.1115/1.4039555 ).
