Consolidation of commingled yarn based composites: continuum modelling
2007 (English)In: Proceedings of COMP07: 6th International Symposium on Advanced Composites 16-18 May, 2007, Corfu, Greece, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
Pressure driven consolidation of a component made from a commingled yarn composite is modelled and simulated. A finite-element code is developed based on a novel two-phase continuum framework. The applicability of the code to complex geometries is demonstrated by analysis of the consolidation, i.e. resin infiltration and preform deformation, of an axisymmetric filament wound GF/PP pressure vessel. In conclusion, the consolidation of the vessel is prevented by the loading mode where the pressure is applied on the interior. To succeed in manufacturing of this type of pressure vessel, a use of an loosely wound preform that allows extension in the fibre direction is suggested.
