Design of innovative composite hybrid joints with electromagnetic compatibility

D-JOINTS

Design of innovative composite hybrid joints with electromagnetic compatibility

Link to CORDIS:
Objectives: 

D-JOINTS will explore new innovative composite-metal joints with enhanced lightning strike protection. The design of these joints will be achieved through a dedicated sizing tool. Key design parameters will be identified and coded in the tool. A material properties database will provide the needed material information for the design of each joint. Finally, the new joints will be integrated in a composite nose part. The manufactured demonstrators will be tested for lightning strike protection.

The project objectives are:

  • Model the mechanical and electrical performance of reference joints
  • Improve the reference joints electromagnetic performance
  • Develop a sizing tool for dissimilar joints
  • Manufacture and test the CNP with the new dissimilar joints integrated in the structure
