Bombardier CS100 Wing to Body Fairing (WTBF) Allowables Derivation:
Morson Projects initiated for detailed design phase.
Laminate used un-tested (Cytec 985/HTA) without design allowables.
Morson Projects were tasked with developing material stiffnesses and design allowables for the laminates based on laminate single ply strength allowables and previously certified materials for the WTBF design space.
Lamina stiffness data
Lamina strength data (accounting for damage, to be used with the Tsai-Hill/Max stress criterion)
Inter-laminar shear strength
Open Hole tension and compression strength
Joints (Bearing and Pull Through strength)
Coupon Testing to cover Design Space
Bombardier CS100 Wing to Body Fairing (WTBF) Methods Development:
The design was still not fully defined and fluid. The requirement of tools to analyse large amounts of data that can be quickly modified for updated geometry and loads.
Tools developed with Excel using VBA to speed up process, automation and to reduce human error in analysis producing a right first time approach.
Tools developed from industry renowned methods for:
