Stretch Forming Simulation of Woven Composites Based on an Orthotropic Non-Linear Material Model

Akhavan Zanjani, Nima; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


Characterisation experiments have been conducted on a woven self-reinforced polypropylene composite (SRPP) including uniaxial and bias extension tests. Outcomes of these experiments were employed to develop a non-linear orthotropic material model within an incremental deformation framework. The material model of the woven composite was implemented into a finite element simulation to predict stretch forming behaviour of SRPP specimens. The predicted strain paths at the pole of specimens were...[Show more]
