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 ...

Abstract In this study, the fatigue properties of SPR joints in CFRP-to-AA6111 aluminum alloy in lap-shear and cross-tension specimens are presented. The test specimens were produced with two distinctive targeted rivet head heights separated by 0.3 mm. The tensile failure load and fatigue life of the lap-shear joints in particular was highly influenced by the flushness of the rivet head against the top sheet of CFRP. The lap-shear SPR joints produced with a proud head height exhibited higher ten...

Abstract Predicting the mechanical behavior of the chopped carbon fiber Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) due to spatial variations in local material properties is critical for the structural performance analysis but is computationally challenging. Such spatial variations are induced by the material flow in the compression molding process. In this work, a new multiscale SMC modeling framework and the associated computational techniques are developed to provide accurate and efficient predictions of SM...

Abstract Mixed-mode fatigue crack growth behavior of an automotive adhesive bonding system (AA5754O- A951-BM4601) has been investigated using a compound compact mixed-mode specimen. The test was performed under load control with 0.1 R ratio and 3Hz frequency. A long-distance moving microscope was employed to record the real-time length of the fatigue crack in the adhesive layer during testing. The strain energy release rate components of the crack were analyzed by finite element method. The pure...
