A viscoelastic approach for modeling bending behavior in finite element forming simulation of continuously fiber reinforced composites
07 Aug 2017 | Publications | Contributor(s): Dominik Dörr, Fabian J. Schirmaier, Frank Henning, Luise Kärger
An approach for modeling rate-dependent bending behavior in FE forming simulation for either a unidirectional or a woven/bidirectional reinforcement is presented. The applicability of the bending model to both fiber architectures is guaranteed by introducing either an orthogonal or a...
Composite Stiffness Property Prediction
07 Aug 2017 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Joshua Morris
Micromechanical models for the composite axial tensile, transverse tensile, and axial shear are combined into one tool with the objective of comparing their effectiveness as property prediction methods. Rule of mixtures models (ROM) and the composite cylinder model (CCM) results for...
Woven fabrics UMAT- a coupled material model
02 Aug 2017 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Masoud Haghi Kashani, Masoud Hejazi, Abbas Hosseini, Farrokh Sassani, Frank Ko, Abbas S. Milani
One of the advantages of woven fabrics over unidirectional prepregs is their superior formability thanks to the large shear deformation capability. There exists, however, a limit on the shear deformation of woven fabrics, namely the wrinkling. Applying tension to delay wrinkling during forming...
