Printed Thesis Information:


he thesis introduces novel techniques to study the effects of moulding materials including
different fabric architecture on the strength of pultruded adhesive joints and how to
improve it. The overall objectives are (i) to devise laboratory techniques which mimic the
pultrusion moulding process using glass fabric and vinyl ester resin and other moulding
materials, (ii) to optimise the moulding materials and maximise the level of adhesion of the
pultrusion and hence to improve the structural efficiency of the joints and (iii) to determine
critical stresses and failure initiation through thickness of the composite laminate using
multi-scale modeling.
