There has been a significant growth in the use of engineered composites for various engineering applications because of their many advantages over traditional construction materials. In civil infrastructure, their applications include all-composite bridges, strengthening and rehabilitation systems, internal reinforcement, sandwich structures, marine piles, and railway sleepers. In transport, marine, aerospace, industrial, and recreational applications, fibre composites are well accepted due to their lightweight, high-strength and high durability. Based on the topics covered in the course, in this assignment, you are required to propose an innovative application of fibre composites in your own area of discipline. This can be a new application, an alternative solution or a modification to the existing system. In order to avoid duplication, you need to have your design concept approved by 08 May 2015.
The design concept report (15 page maximum) should then be submitted by 12 June 2015 which addresses the following:
1. Introduction and background (50 marks)
This should include a brief introduction and background to the proposed concept, discussion on the problem with the existing system and/or the significance of the new fibre composite solution, and the advantages of your innovative solution compared to the existing products or systems.
2. Concept and innovation (50 marks)
Describe the overall concept and the innovativeness of your proposed composites solution and new application. A conceptual drawing should be provided.
3. Strength and durability requirements (125 marks)
Discuss the design requirements (strength and serviceability) and durability consideration in the proposed concept including the type and appropriate forms of fibres, types of resin and fabrication process.
4. Design and evaluation (150 marks)
A preliminary design, analysis and evaluation showing the suitability of the proposed system in terms of strength and stiffness based on the required application. This section should include the material and geometrical specifications of the proposed concept and the fundamental aspect for the attachment of the composite solution to the rest of the structure. A comparison with the existing materials and systems should be also provided.
5. Application, maintenance and other issues (100 marks)
Possible issues in the design, production and application should be discussed. Other issues that will limit the application including maintenance of the proposed composites solution should be presented. Recommendations to address these issues should be provided.
6. References (25 marks)
All references should be cited appropriately within the text and provided in a list in accordance with the recommended USQ format.
