Abstract

As a result of international corporative benchmark works, material characterization of the woven fabric reinforced composites has been examined to better understand their mechanical properties and to provide the process design information for numerical analysis. Here, in order to predict thermo-forming behaviors of woven composites, the double dome stretching tests have been numerically performed for the balanced plain weave. To account for the change of fiber orientation under the large deformation, the non-orthogonal constitutive model has been utilized and nonlinear friction behavior is incorporated in the simulation. Also the equivalent material properties based on the contact status have been used for the thermo-stamping process. Blank draw-in, punch force history and fiber orientation after forming will be reported.
