A combined optical-thermal model for laser-assisted fibre placement of thermoplastic composite materials
Automated fibre placement of thermoplastic composites has potential to produce high performance composite structures in a fast, clean, automated, out-of-autoclave process. Structures are manufactured in an additive fashion by depositing pre-impregnated thermoplastic composite plies layer-by-layer, with a placement head on an articulated robot for example. During placement, the plies are welded together in situ, which is achieved by melting the surfaces of the plies to be bonded with application...[Show more]
