Induced forming modes in a pre-consolidated woven polypropylene composite during stretch forming process at room temperature: I. Experimental studies

Akhavan Zanjani, Nima; Sexton, Anthony; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


In the current study, rectangular specimens of pre-consolidated woven Self-Reinforced Polypropylene (SRPP) possessing different fibre orientations and aspect ratios were stretch formed in an open die. Induced displacements were recorded by an in-situ 3D photogrammetric measurement system. Resultant principal strains were investigated to clarify the role of different deformation modes during stamp forming. The dependency of induced deformation modes to the specimens' geometries was studied. A...[Show more]
