Fiber reinforced composite materials are a heavily sought after material for next generation vehicles for light-weighting components due to their high specific strength and stiffness. However, when these composite materials are manufactured into laminates, they have relatively weak interlaminar strength and are prone to delamination. This is especially the case when a delamination crack already exists. Quasi-3D (Q3D) braided composites seek to solve this issue by weaving the bias tows into the a...

Abstract This study investigates the effects of process conditions on the inherent variabilities in fused filament fabrication (FFF) of short carbon-fiber-reinforced Nylon-6 composites, where the sources of uncertainty and their adverse effects on microstructures and Young’s modulus are quantified. Microstructural characteristics such as fiber volume fraction, void volume fraction, and their spatial distributions are first extracted via image-based data analytics, and then their uncertainties ar...

Abstract In current work, the crashworthiness of woven carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) hat section component is investigated under two types of loading experimentally and numerically, i.e., axial crushing and dynamic three-point bending. The crushing characteristics of woven CFRP hat section sample are evaluated at various impact velocities and layup orientations which exhibit different effects under two types of loading. With impact velocity/energy increasing, the bending behaviors illus...

Abstract We present a data-driven nonlinear uncertainty quantification and propagation framework to study the microstructure-induced stochastic performance of unidirectional (UD) carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites. The proposed approach integrates (1) microscopic image characterization, (2) stochastic microstructure reconstruction, and (3) efficient multiscale finite element simulations enabled by self-consistent clustering (SCA) analysis. To model the complex microstructural vari...

Abstract In this work, we have developed a computational probabilistic method to quantify the permanent (non-zero strain) continuum/material deformation. Different from physical-based modeling, the method developed here is based on a data-driven statistics approach, which solves the problem without needing the information of physical deformation process. The proposed method relies only on the scanned material data from the thermal distorted configuration as well as the shape of the initial desig...

Abstract The mechanical behaviors and damage evolutions of carbon/epoxy woven fabric composites with three different geometries, i.e., one plain weave and two twill weave patterns with different areal densities, are studied under tensile loading. The effects of weave patterns on mechanical properties are investigated by monotonic and cyclic tension tests. Remarkable variations in stress-strain curve, Poisson’s ratio, residual strain and strain map exist in the three composites. Crimp ratio is fo...

Abstract The mechanical properties and damage behaviors of carbon/epoxy woven fabric composite under in-plane tension and compression are studied at the meso-scale level through experiment and simulation. An efficient representative volume element (RVE) modeling method with consistent mesh, high yarn volume fraction and realistic geometry is proposed. The material constitutive laws with plasticity, tension-compression asymmetry and damage evolution are established for the three components - yarn...

Abstract To develop a composite with high in-plane properties and sufficient delamination resistance, a quasi-three-dimensional (Q3D) woven composite has been designed. In Q3D, some yarns in each layer are woven into those in the adjacent layers and form a 3D interlocking network. This study examines the performance of a carbon fiber/SC-15 epoxy triaxial Q3D [ (0°/60°/−60°)4 ] composite. For comparison, a [0°/60°/ − 60°]4 composite laminate with unidirectional (UD) plies and a [ 0°/60°/−60° ]4 l...

Abstract The mechanical properties and damage evolutions of carbon/epoxy woven fabric composites with three different fabric architectures, including one plain weave and two twill weave patterns, are experimentally investigated under multiaxial stress states. In particular, the effects of weave patterns are investigated by monotonic and cyclic off-axis tension tests. Both elastic modulus and strength degrade remarkably with increasing off-axis loading angle, while Poisson's ratio is much higher ...

Abstract The dynamic crushing characteristics of unidirectional carbon fiber reinforced plastic composites under two loading types, dynamic three-point bending and axial crushing, are investigated by experiment and finite element simulation. Hat section samples with two different layup orientations are tested at various impact velocities to investigate its effects. The experiment results show that delamination plays a critical role in dynamic bending deformation. Different layup orientations lea...
