Project Support (2006-2008)
AGS, HHX and Plenum Part
Strength justification of the Air Generation System (AGS) Ram Air Inlet, the Heat Exchanger (HHX) Ram Air Inlet and Outlet structures and the plenum structure. Performed detail stress analysis and sizing for CFRP, metallic and sandwich constructions parts. These included: maximum strain, laminate plain and notched laminate strength analyses, laminate strength analysis at corners, core transverse shear and core crushing strength analyses, shear crimping, wrinkling and intra-cell buckling strength analyses. It also included the strength analysis of all metallic fitting parts, attachments and lugs. Final strength justification reports were prepared for all parts.
