    Automated Dry Fibre Placement of Complex Geometries


    Veldenz, L, Kim, BC, Potter, K & Giddings, P, 2018, ‘Automated Dry Fibre Placement of Complex Geometries’.


    Using an automated manufacturing process such as Automated Dry Fibre Placement (ADFP) for complex geometries can be expensive and time consuming if it is developed with a trial and error approach as it is often the case in industry. This work aims to:
    understand of the fundamental aspects of the ADFP by employing the principle of the pyramid of testing.
    using this understanding to reduce the development time of complex geometries.
    This work shows the progression of the fibre volume fraction (Vf) throughout the process, highlighting the impact of the manufacturing process on the preform and laminate quality.
