Abstract:This study investigates the effect of preheat temperature, blank holder force and feed rate on the formability of polypropylene based Fibre-Metal Laminates. Finite element method combined with Design of Experiments was used to determine the influence of the forming process parameters. The design of experiments was used to identify the relative influence of each process parameter considered in this study. A reduced set of coupled structural-thermal simulations using Ls-Dyna were carried out using a L9 orthogona… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
