M07: Modeling and Process Simulation of Fiber-Reinforced Polymers

Belongs to:
TopicM: Modelling and Simulation

Fiber reinforced polymers, e.g. continuous-discontinous long fiber reinforced polymers, with their promising properties have become attractive due to many applications, mainly in automotive and transportation industry in the framework of light-weight  construction and manufacturing. Especially in the field of three-dimensional load bearing structures, these materials and their process chains need to be much better and more quantitatively understood. This symposium focuses on different aspects of modeling and simulation  of fiber-reinforced polymers and of their complete process chain: scale-bridging and homogenization methods for the multi-scale simulations of the anisotropic and non-linear material behavior, appropriate interfaces for coupling fluid-type and structural simulations in order to simultaneously simulate several manufacturing steps, models for describing the fracture behavior of these materials, all of them strongly depending on reliable experimental data for validation.
