Resin transfer molding (RTM) is considered a promising manufacturing process for high performance composite materials. In the RTM process, gate/vent location is one of the most important variables in process design. It has a great impact on mold filling time and resin flow pattern, thus affects...
In order to assess the potential of commingled yarns for cost-effective manufacturing of thermoplastic composites, an integrated cost and consolidation model has been developed. The cost estimation procedure and the consolidation model are applicable to a wide variety of composite processing...
The use of composite materials in sheet forming applications is gaining popularity with the rise of consumer demands and specific mechanical properties. In addition to unidirectional (UD) fibres, the use of textile reinforcements such as woven fabric and knitted fabric has been shown to be...
Filament wound flat strip composites of polyethylene fiber reinforced ethylene–butene copolymers were produced and their fatigue behavior under cyclic loading was studied. Three different copolymer compositions and two different winding angles were employed in order to study the effects of...
The ability to predict failure loads in composite structures containing through-the-thickness cracks is a requirement in a variety of structural design circumstances. The objective of this study was to develop a practical computational technique that simulates progressive damage growth in the...
Phlogopite is a flaky mineral with outstanding chemical, thermal and electrical resistance and is also flame resistant. These properties make it a candidate for combining it with a polymeric binder to produce a composite board. It is the purpose of the present study to investigate the influence...
The mechanical behavior of rigid-thermoplastic matrix–cellulose fiber reinforced composites is investigated. These materials exhibit a brittle behavior, that is, they possess a high modulus and therefore, a very limited amount of deformation to fracture. Such behavior makes the characterization...
The diaphragm forming process used for the cost efficient production of thermoplastic composite components has been experimentally investigated. The process has been optimized with regard to product quality and cost. For the process optimization a new generic concept is introduced. The proposed...
