Experimental characterisation of the formability of a thermoplastic fibre metal laminate

Sexton, Anthony; Cantwell, Wesley J; Doolan, Matthew; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


This study aims to assess the forming behaviour of thermoplastic fibre metal laminates based on a self-reinforced polypropylene composite and an aluminium alloy. The development of a method for the rapid manufacturing of parts made from fibre metal laminates would facilitate the widespread adoption of these materials in the automotive and renewable energy industries. Metallic parts are most commonly manufactured using the method of stamp forming and research into the application of this method...[Show more]
