Abstract This experimental study reports effect of tuft geometry i.e., standard tufts and loops milled-down, and tufting pattern on Mode I interlaminar fracture in a GFRP. Standard tufting geometry is responsible for an increase in fracture resistance by 3.5–6 times than the neat composite, depending on the areal pattern. Based on 5 mm squared tufting pattern on DCB specimens with a full-length release film at laminate mid-plane and non-tufted ones, the individual contribution to fracture of tuf...

Abstract This article reports modeling techniques and results based on experimental Mode I characterization of a layered woven GFRP material with tufting reinforcement. Standard tuft and loop-less geometries are investigated on three different areal patterns to evaluate their effects on fracture resistance. The experiments reveal that tow/ply and tuft bridging phenomena are present during delamination. The numerical modeling comprises cohesive elements for tow/ply bridging and 1D connector eleme...

Abstract In the current paper, investigations have been carried out on in-plane and out-of-plane mechanical properties of 3D multiaxial woven composites keeping in view three different architectures. The first two architectures constitute of additional bias yarns oriented at +θ° and −θ° along with 0° and 90°, whereas the third comprises of yarns directed at 0° and 90° only. Composites in which the bias yarns accompany the 0° and 90° yarns have improved mechanical properties in comparison to clas...

Abstract The lack of strengthening mechanisms in the through-thickness direction of two-dimensional (2D) laminated composites often results in the incubation and initiation of distinct damage patterns such as delaminations and cracking. To address this issue, 3D woven composites containing z-binders have been introduced to provide means for enhanced damage tolerance. To assess the benefits of such novel composite architectures, this article uses an experimental mechanics approach coupled with a ...

In this work, three types of 3D woven fabric (orthogonal, angle interlock, and layer-to-layer) were used to study the effect of weaving architecture on processing and mechanical properties. In order to characterize the fabrics for liquid composite molding processes, the compaction and permeability characteristics of the reinforcements were measured as function of fiber volume fraction. High compaction pressures were required to achieve a target fiber volume fraction of 0.65, due to presence of t...

Abstract A series of small scale specimens were tested to identify if local variations during the manufacturing process influence the energy absorbed during the crushing of tufted sandwich structures. Coupons with varying loop lengths and number of tufts were tested in quasi-static and dynamic edgewise compression. Results of the testing showed that the effect of a single tuft was captured at this small scale, whilst the tufting parameters changed the damage behaviour, including the response of ...

Abstract Damage initiation and evolution of three-dimensional (3D) orthogonal woven carbon fibre composite (3DOWC) is investigated experimentally and numerically. Meso-scale homogenisation of the representative volume element (RVE) is utilised to predict the elastic properties, simulate damage initiation and evolution when loaded in tension. The effect of intra-yarns transverse cracking and shear diffused damage on the in-plane transverse modulus and shear modulus is investigated while one failu...

Abstract Three different architectures of 3D carbon fibre woven composites (orthogonal, ORT; layer-to-layer, LTL; angle interlock, AI) were tested in quasi-static uniaxial tension. Mechanical tests (tensile in on-axis of warp and weft directions as well as 45° off-axis) were carried out with the aim to study the loading direction sensitivity of these 3D woven composites. The z-binder architecture (the through-thickness reinforcement) has an effect on void content, directional fibre volume fracti...

Abstract This study investigates the performance of three-dimensional (3-D) woven interlock composite plates subjected to impact loading. Low velocity (lower than 10 m·s −1 ) impacts with highly deformable rubber impactor are addressed. Response variability is investigated by conducting several impact tests in the same conditions. The effect of mass and velocity on damage tolerance is studied by varying the impact conditions. Force–time, displacement–time and force–displacement curves are first ...

Micromechanical schemes based on the discrete homogenization method are developed to predict the effective mechanical properties of 3D dry textiles, including the bending moduli, and accounting for internal scale effects by the consideration of additional rotational degrees of freedom at the mesoscopic level. The unit of repeat identified for a given interlock is represented as a set of structural beam like elements that defines the representative volume element (RVE), with periodicity boundary ...

Abstract null null This work investigated the static and fatigue properties of 3D stitched composite and 2D laminated composite subjected to three-point bending loads. Four stress levels were carried out to investigate fatigue characteristics of the composites. The failure propagation of the composites and their fracture morphology were captured in detail using the high-speed camera. The results demonstrated that the static flexural strength of 3D stitched composite was lower than 2D laminated c...

Traditional laminated composites have fibres oriented only in the in-plane of the laminate due to their manufacturing process, and are therefore very susceptible to transverse cracking and delamination from out-of-plane actions. Delamination can considerably reduce the load bearing capacity of a structure hence several reinforcement solutions, based on the principle to add out-of-plane reinforcement to the 2D fabric, have been explored to enhance the delamination resistance. However, the usual t...

A representative volume element method and a novel mesomechanical-based polyline model are proposed to describe the misalignment of in-plane fibers induced by the insertion of stitch thread. A multi-scale mathematical model of in-plane elastic parameters for stitched composite laminate is established with ply-angle and stitch parameters as well as material parameters taken into account. Based on the fabrication of specimens and the verification of experimental platform, the superposition influen...

Abstract null null A novel Tri-directional Carbon-Flax-Aramid fiber reinforced composite (3D-CFAFRP) was proposed, manufactured and tested in this study, which was designed based on the idea of better tailoring the strength, stiffness, toughness and weight requirements, adopting three different types of fibers to reinforce the matrix along three orthogonal directions. The in-plane and interlaminar mechanical properties of 3D-CFAFRP composites were studied experimentally, and were compared with t...

Abstract Tufting of preforms increases the resistance of the laminated composites to delamination. Draping of the preforms is clearly modified by the presence of tufting threads. A simulation approach for the forming of tufted textile reinforcement stacks is proposed. It determines the state of the tufted preforms after forming and in particular the possible wrinkles. The layers of textile reinforcements are modeled by stress resultant shells. Tufting threads are modeled by rod chains that can s...

The originality of this work consists in the study of the stamping behaviour of tufted and un-tufted carbon preforms. Several preforms by varying the tufting thread orientations (0°, 90° and 0°/90°) and with different stratifications ([0°/90°,-45°/+45°] and [0°/90°,-45°/+45°]2) were manufactured in order to study their out-of-plane deformability. The stamping test was carried out using a hemispherical punch and conducted at two blank-holder pressures (0.05 and 0.2 MPa). The experimental data hig...
