The effect of process temperature on the formability of polypropylene based fibre-metal laminates

Mosse, Luke; Compston, Paul; Cantwell, Wesley J; Cardew-Hall, Michael; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


In developing a methodology for a robust stamp-forming process for glass-fibre reinforced thermoplastic Fibre-Metal Laminate (FML) systems, an understanding of the effects of process variables on critical formability measures is required. This study recognises temperature as the primary process condition and investigates the thermal profile of an FML for a range of potential processes. These profiles have been applied to the stamping of a channel section and their success quantified using shape...[Show more]
