    • Characterization of bondline thickness effects in adhesive joints 

      Tomblin, John S.; Harter, P.; Seneviratne, Waruna P.; Yang, Chihdar Charles (American Society for Testing and Materials, 2002-04)
      Growing application of composite materials in air-frame structures tends to make significant use of bonded constructions. Despite the large work that has been done on adhesive characterization over previous years, various ...
    • Correlation of tensile and bending strength of composites with a circular hole 

      Zhao, Yi; Pang, Su-Seng; Yang, Chihdar Charles (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 1996-10)
      While significant studies have been conducted on composites containing a circular or an elliptic hole under tensile loading, few investigations have been reported on notched composites under bending due to the complex ...
    • Heat-activated joining technology for composite to alloy piping systems 

      Stubblefield, Michael A.; Yang, Chihdar Charles; Pang, Su-Seng (Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE), 1998-04)
      A new process for joining composite to alloy piping systems, the heat-activated joining technique, has been developed. The strength of the heat coupling joint in bending, tension, and hydro static testing was comparable ...
    • Impact response of single-lap composite joints 

      Pang, Su-Seng; Yang, Chihdar Charles; Zhao, Yi (Elsevier, 1995)
      The low-velocity impact of adhesive-bonded single-lap composite joints has been studied using a spring-mass model. In this quasi-static model, the impact response is represented by a time-dependent force, and the target ...
    • Improving the mechanical properties of composite pipe using multi-angle filament winding 

      Lea, Richard H.; Yang, Chihdar Charles (National Association of Corrosion Engineers International, 1998-03)
      The benefits of composite materials-light weight, corrosion resistance, handling ease, etc., have long been appreciated. Composite piping systems are gaining wide acceptance in various industries such as petrochemical, ...
    • Investigation of thick bondline adhesive joints. FInal report 

      Tomblin, John S.; Yang, Chihdar Charles; Harter, P. (National Technical Information Service (NTIS), 2001-06)
      In recent years, the use of polymer matrix composite materials as primary structural components has risen, especially in the general aviation (GA) industry. The use of composites not only results in weight savings, but ...
    • Qualification of advanced composite pipe for use in fire water deluge systems on open type offshore oil platforms 

      Stubblefield, M.A.; Yang, Chihdar Charles; Pang, Su-Seng; Lea, Richard H. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 1996-07)
      Different types of FIBERBOND pipe in the dry condition and with a butt & strap joint were subjected to a controlled fire for fire endurance evaluation. Testing adheres to a modification of the ASTM 1173-95 guideline, which ...
    • Stress analysis of composite pipe joints under combined torsional and tensile loading 

      Yang, Chihdar Charles; Guan, Zhidong (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2009-09)
      An analytical model was developed using the first-order laminated shell theory to determine stress and strain distributions within a composite pipe joint under combined torsional and tensile loading. Due to the axisymmetric ...
    • Stress analysis of composite pipe joints under combined torsional and tensile loading 

      Yang, Chihdar Charles; Guan, Zhidong (Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE), 2001-11)
      An analytical model was developed using the first-order laminated anisotropic plate theory to determine the stress and strain distributions within a composite pipe joint under combined torsional and tensile loading. Due ...
    • Stress and failure analyses of adhesive-bonded composite joints using ASTM D3165 specimens 

      Huang, Hai; Yang, Chihdar Charles; Tomblin, John S.; Harter, P. (American Society for Testing and Materials, 2002-04)
      An analytical model was developed to determine the stress and strain distributions of single-lap adhesive-bonded composite joints under tension. Both the adherend and the adhesive were assumed linear elastic in the ...
    • Stress model of composite pipe joints under bending 

      Yang, Chihdar Charles; Huang, Hai; Guan, Zhidong (SAGE Publications, 2002-06)
      Recently, composite pipe is becoming popular in the offshore oil and gas industry due to the new floating designs of various platforms which have made deepwater oil and gas exploration and production more economical and ...
