Description

May Chapter Meeting

Failure Analysis of Composite Structures, a.k.a. the Engineering Process to Answering How and Why

Speaker: Cecilia Larrosa Wilson, Ph.D., P.E.

Structural Integrity Associates, Inc.

 

Abstract

The use of carbon fiber reinforced materials is increasing due to their superior properties of strength, stiffness, weight, performance, corrosion resistance, etc. But one of the major challenges with composite materials is that they suffer different damage types that can occur in sequence or simultaneously within different plies. Each failure mode or combination of these may have a different impact on the performance of the structure and makes damage inspection and monitoring very complex, which can lead to premature failures. This presentation will highlight some key engineering steps to answering the hows and whys that arise when a composite component fails.

 

Biography

Dr. Wilson's background is in aerospace structural design, analysis, and testing with a focus on composite materials. Her areas of expertise include mechanics of materials, failure analysis and Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE/NDI) techniques of a variety of materials including metals, plastics and reinforced plastics. She specializes in composite failure mechanics, and composite manufacturing processes. Dr. Wilson has a B.S in Aerospace Engineering from San Diego State University, a M.S and Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University.

As a consultant at Structural Integrity Associates, Dr. Wilson routinely performs engineering root cause analysis on failure of wind turbine components, power plant systems and oil and gas operations. She is also a part time faculty at San Jose State University where she teaches courses on advanced aerospace structures and materials.

 

Sponsor

Riga Analytical Lab is an independent laboratory offering confidential analytical services to the semiconductor and electronic industries. The lab is situated strategically in the heart of Silicon Valley, about 5 miles north of the San Jose International Airport and about 30 miles south of the San Francisco International Airport.

Riga Analytical Lab was founded in 1982 by Giorgio Riga with the purpose of providing specialized analytical services to the semiconductor industry. In the intervening years, the laboratory has expanded its analytical service capability to include fiberoptic components, MEMS, hybrid modules, flat panel displays, magnetic media and printed circuit boards.

The staff is comprised of industry experts with backgrounds encompassing electronics, materials engineering, semiconductor development and manufacturing and has extensive experience in semiconductor failure analysis and structure characterization.
