Forming analysis of chopped flax fibre reinforced polypropylene composites

Wang, Wentian; Lowe, Adrian; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


This work presents fundamental results on the research carried out by stamp forming of a chopped flax fibre reinforced polypropylene composite. The application of the real time non-contact strain measuring system, ARAMIS", facilitates observations on material behaviour during forming. Through visual, microscopic and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) examinations, the major failure mode exhibited in the flax/polypropylene composite at room temperature is identified as fibre fracture. The punch...[Show more]
