A Comparison between Forming Behaviours of Two Pre-Consolidated Woven Thermoplastic Composites

Akhavan Zanjani, Nima; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


This paper presents the results of an investigation on stretch forming behaviour of two consolidated woven thermoplastic composites: a self-reinforced polypropylene (SRPP) and a glass-fibre reinforced polypropylene (GRPP) composite. A custom-built press with a hemispherical punch was employed to deform composites’ specimens possessing different aspect ratios into an open die. The induced strains on the outer surface of specimens were measured continuously through two high speed, high...[Show more]
