Damage Tolerant Design Guidelines for Seamless Carbon Fiber Composite Structures for Pressurized Cylinders

The project research goal is to develop design guidelines for damage tolerant structures for circular hollow sections of seamless carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) matrix composites. The researcher has tested how to conduct the hydrostatic testing and identified what factors must be overcome before testing. The damage characterization of internal pressurization can be used by industry, retrofitters, nuclear power, and other high tech companies. Future work can be conducted on different types of carbon fiber weaving.
