An Investigation of Wrinkling Behaviour in Woven Thermoplastic Composite Material
This work is designed to develop a viable universal indicator to predict the onset of wrinkling for woven thermoplastic fiber-reinforced composite materials. A range of experiments on Yoshida test are carried out to investigate the local strain behaviour at the onset of wrinkling. An approach of using the abrupt change in the slope of the evolution of the strain path to predict the onset of wrinkling is proposed in this study. This approach is the first of its...[Show more]
