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 This paper addresses the challenge of reconstructing nonuniformly orientated fiber-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) with three-dimensional (3D) geometric complexity, especially for fibers with curvatures, and proposes a framework using micro X-ray computed tomography (μXCT) images to quantify the fiber characteristics in 3D space for elastic modulus prediction. The FRP microstructure is first obtained from the μXCT images. Then, the fiber centerlines are efficiently extracted with t...

Abstract Computational analyses of emerging materials such as fibrous composites rely on multiscale simulations. To account for the inherent uncertainty in these materials, such simulations must be integrated with statistical uncertainty quantification (UQ) and propagation (UP) methods. However, limited advancement has been made in this regard due to the significant computational costs and complexities in modeling spatially correlated structural variations coupled at different scales. In this wo...

Abstract This paper explored the 3D progressive fracture process of a short carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite under uniaxial tensile loading via high-resolution in-situ micro X-ray computed tomography (μXCT). Microstructural features extracted from the μXCT images were analyzed with the Halpin-Tsai model, laminate analogy approach, and shear-lag model to calculate the mechanical properties and interpret the different fracture morphologies and progressions observed in the “skin-core-skin”...

Abstract The material behavior of chopped carbon fiber chip-reinforced Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) composite is investigated under both quasi-static and cyclic fatigue loading conditions in the present study. Quasi-static tensile and compressive strength data is collected, followed by a series of fatigue tests under three different cyclic loading conditions, i.e., Tension-Tension (T-T), Compression-Compression (C-C), and Tension-Compression (T-C). The experimental results show a considerable am...

Abstract In present study, the fatigue damage behavior of chopped carbon fiber chip-reinforced composite has been experimentally and numerically investigated. A large scatter is exhibited in the S-N diagram due to the random distribution of carbon fiber chips, and therefore a new analysis procedure is proposed to link the local microstructure to the fatigue behavior of the bulk material. Interrupted fatigue tests are also performed so that microstructure characterization can be conducted on the ...
