Title (EN) CONTOURED CRUSHABLE COMPOSITE STRUCTURAL MEMBERS AND METHODS FOR MAKING THE SAME
(FR) ELEMENTS STRUCTURELS COMPOSITES A PROFILS DEFORMABLES ET PROCEDES DE FABRICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides contoured crushable composite structural members (2) and methods for making the same. The contoured structural members (2) comprise composite materials (4, 8) sandwhiching a support or stabilizing structure (6). The contoured structure (2) can be provided by tube rolling (or roll wrapping) the composite materials (4, 8) and the support structure (6) together and then, if necessary, bonding or connecting them. The structural members are made crushable by incorporating an initiator into the structures of the members. With a contoured, crushable, and generally non-flat structure, applications for the structural members of the present invention are nearly limitless.
(FR)L'invention concerne des élément structurels composites à profils déformables (2) et des procédés de fabrication. Les éléments (2) comprennent des matériaux composites (4, 8) qui prennent en sandwich une structure de soutien ou de stabilisation (6). La configuration des profils (2) peut résulter d'un laminage de tubes (enroulement de cylindres) permettant d'assembler les matériaux composites (4, 8) et la structure de soutien (6), et le cas échéant de les relier. On rend les éléments déformables par incorporation d'un initiateur dans la structure de ces éléments. Les éléments ainsi profilés et rendus déformables, généralement selon une structure non plate, offrent un éventail d'applications presque illimité.
