Composite Technologist and Process Engineer

Cwmbran, Wales, United Kingdom

January 2018 - February 2019

Key responsibilities: Develop new design and processes for composite materials to meet product requirements such as weight, stiffness and function. Work closely with production and the final assembly line to ensure quality and assembly of composites. Influence and guide the design to ensure design for manufacture: working on Design Manual to provide the Design and Manufacturing engineers with a guideline for composite processes. Work in collaboration with the programme team to ensure that products meet cost and weight targets. Liaise with internal and external customers, suppliers, departments and regulatory bodies as required. Support the business with initiatives to drive continuous improvement of department processes and manuals and in developing new capabilities and methods. Work specifically on adhesive replacement for composite applications: structural bonding adhesives, core filler, core splice, edge filler. Responsible for the process and composite improvement and rework procedures with respect to concession (compiling and editing engineering process specifications). Responsible for Design Manual, coordinating efforts from Safran Seats BUs.

The development of embedded vascular networks in FRP as thermal management tools for cure control

June 2014 - December 2014

Extended project for six months as part of the Centre for Doctoral Training programme. Supervisors: Ian Bond, Richard Trask, Andrew Lawrie, Adam Bishop (Rolls-Royce plc) The feasibility of the principle of embedding vascular networks in thick composite laminates for the optimisation of the curing process was investigated. This was carried out through the ‌use of relatively high temperature mediums such as silicone oil through a network of vascular tubes as a cure system. The purpose is the homogenisation of the temperature level through the laminate thickness and the control of the exothermic reaction and the cure cycle. A lab-scale demonstrator was manufactured as proof-of-concept setup, and the heat transfer phenomena were investigated within a viscous fluid (i.e. silicone oil). Finite element analysis of the heat transfer phenomenon within a viscous medium and the cure process in a randomly oriented composite part was carried out in Abaqus, by replicating the experimental setup. It is proposed that cure processing can be carried out within the composite part thanks to the internal heat sources from the network and exothermic reaction. This can lead to the optimisation of the cure approach for more complex composite structures, or those of significant size. Project deliverables: - Proof-of-concept experimental setup (thermal camera investigation); - Abaqus thermal modelling (heat transfer and cure simulation); - Comparison of vascular heating and conventional techniques (autoclave, oven).
