Stretch forming studies on a fibre metal laminate based on a self-reinforcing polypropylene composite

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


This paper investigates the room temperature formability of a fibre metal laminate system comprised of aluminium and a self-reinforcing polypropylene composite. Blanks of varying geometry were stretch formed over a hemispherical punch in a custom built stamping press. A real-time three-dimensional photogrammetric measuring system was used to acquire the evolution of surface strain and the strain at failure during forming. The results from this work illustrate that these advanced light weight...[Show more]
