TL;DR: In this paper, carbon fiber-pEEK laminates, manufactured by laser-assisted ATP (LATP) and autoclave, are compared and it is shown that LATP cooling rates are extremely rapid and suggests full through-thickness melting of the pre-preg tape may not occur.

Abstract: Obtaining autoclave-level mechanical properties using in-situ consolidation of thermoplastic composites by Automated Tape Placement (ATP) is challenging. However, relatively recent availability of high quality ATP grade pre-preg material and tape heads equipped with more efficient heat sources (e.g. lasers) offers an opportunity to achieve improved mechanical properties and deposition rates. In the present study, carbon fibre–PEEK laminates, manufactured by laser-assisted ATP (LATP) and autoclave, are compared. Analysis of the through-thickness temperature distribution during LATP processing using thermocouples indicates that LATP cooling rates are extremely rapid and suggests full through-thickness melting of the pre-preg tape may not occur. Inadequate crystallinity, in conjunction with voids, compromised mechanical properties compared to autoclaved laminates but was beneficial in terms of the toughness of LATP laminates. Optimisation of pre-preg properties and processing parameters is required to realise the full potential of the LATP process in terms of mechanical properties, energy requirements, cost and deposition rates.

TL;DR: The use of composite materials in engineering structures continues to increase dramatically, and there have been significant advances in modeling for general and composite materials and structures in particular as discussed by the authors. But the use of composites is not limited to the aerospace domain.

Abstract: The use of composite materials in engineering structures continues to increase dramatically, and there have been equally significant advances in modeling for general and composite materials and structures in particular.
