Professor Bo Jin, Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering, USC

Advanced composites exhibit unique mechanical, chemical, and thermal properties, and have launched a materials revolution in the aerospace, automotive, and civil applications. This talk will summarize some recent efforts to design improved processes for composites manufacturing, and advance fundamental understanding of the materials behavior that stems from critical phenomena occurring during manufacturing processes.

For example, what mechanism(s) causes defect formation during Vacuum-Bag-Only (VBO) prepreg processing and how can they be mitigated? How can Out-of-Autoclave (OoA) processes and VBO prepregs be optimized to address current manufacturing limitations? How can we effectively reuse and recycle Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) Composites? More fundamentally, how can we use multiscale and multiphysics FEA simulation, as well as Nondestructive Evaluation tools such as x-ray tomography, digital image correlation and ultrasonic scans to improve manufacturing processes and composite performance? Answers to these questions will generate insights into the ties between manufacturing processes and material microstructures, and lead to improved manufacturing processes and performance.…
