Mechanical characteristics of carbon fibre yacht masts

Blicblau, A. and Clements, D. (1995) Mechanical characteristics of carbon fibre yacht masts. [Study Group Report]



This paper provides a preliminary stress analysis of a carbon reinforced layered cylinder such as would be found in a yacht mast. The cylinder is subjected to a compressive load and both an analytical and numerical analysis of the resulting stress fields is obtained. Some conclusions are obtained regarding the failure mode for particular examples of such cylinders.
