Deformation Limits “Form ability” Low resistance to shear & bending High anisotropy Negligible fibre extension Low compressive “strength” (fibre buckling)

11
Formability Analysis... From deformation mechanisms ... to material characterisation ... to constitutive modelling ... to process modelling ... and formability prediction

12
**Material Characterisation**

Intra-ply shear (a) Picture frame. (b) Bias extension.

13
**Material Characterisation**

Bi-axial response Crimp leads to non-linear behaviour depending on the warp/weft strain ratio

14
**Material Characterisation**

Ply/tool and Ply/ply Friction Tool/ply friction (glass/PP) Shear stress vs pressure.

15
Continuum Mechanics RECAP: Continuum Mechanics = Balance equations + Material ‘Laws’ + Formalism

16
**Continuum Mechanics Balance Equations Conservation of mass**

Conservation of energy Conservation of momentum Material ‘Laws’ Constitutive equations, relating forces & fluxes Formalism Scalars, vectors, tensors Deformation theories

17
Balance Equations Conservation of mass 𝜌 =−𝜌𝛁∙𝒗 Conservation of momentum 𝜌 𝒗 =𝛁∙𝝈+𝜌𝒃 Conservation of energy (1st Law) 𝜌 𝑢 =𝝈:𝑫−𝛁∙𝒒

18
**Constitutive Equations**

Relations between Fluxes (transport of an extensive quantity) e.g. 𝑞 and 𝑣 and Forces (gradient of an intensive quantity) e.g. 𝛁𝑇 and 𝑝 𝑣 or, indeed, between stresses and strains / strain rates e.g. 𝜎=𝐸𝜖 and 𝜎=𝜂 𝛾

19
Formalism Scalars: e.g. 𝑢,𝑇,𝜌, 𝑝 Vectors: e.g. 𝒒,𝒗 Tensors: e.g. 𝑫,𝝈

20
Formalism Single contraction, 𝒂∙𝒃 ↔ 𝑎 𝑖 𝑏 𝑖 𝑨∙𝑩 ↔ 𝐴 𝑖𝑗 𝐵 𝑗𝑘 Dyadic product, 𝒂𝒃 ↔ 𝑎 𝑖 𝑏 𝑗 Double contraction, 𝑨:𝑩 ↔ 𝐴 𝑖𝑗 𝐵 𝑗𝑖

21
**Composites Forming Processes balance equations**

Viscous & elastic forces dominant (low Reynolds number) Neglect inertia: 𝛁∙𝝈+𝜌𝒃=𝜌 𝒗 =𝟎 Neglect also body forces: Stress equilibrium 𝛁∙𝝈=𝟎 Neglect cooling during forming (at least initially)

22
**Composites Forming Processes constitutive equations**

Matrix response: Viscous ⋯ visco-elastic ⋯ elastic low modulus, O(1 MPa) Fibre response: Elastic high modulus, O(100 GPa) Prepreg/laminate response: Elastic/high modulus - in fibre direction Visco-elastic/low modulus - transverse dir.

23

**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

Strain definition: strain= length increase length 𝜖= Δ𝑙 𝑙 Frame of reference: Which “l” ? Total Lagrange or Updated Lagrange? Differential calculus: 𝑙 Δ𝑙 𝜖= 𝜕𝑢 𝜕𝑥

29
**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

3D Strain definition: 𝜖 𝑖𝑗 = 1 2 𝜕 𝑢 𝑖 𝜕 𝑥 𝑗 + 𝜕 𝑢 𝑗 𝜕 𝑥 𝑖 Good for linear elasticity But does it work for Composites Forming? 𝜖 𝑥𝑥 = 𝜕 𝑢 𝑥 𝜕𝑥 𝑑𝑥 𝑑 𝑢 𝑥

30
**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

𝑑𝑥 Constitutive Equations definition of strain Rigid rotation: Often non-zero axial strain Except for the “average configuration” 𝑑 𝑢 𝑥 𝑑 𝑢 𝑦 𝜖 𝑥𝑥 = 𝜕 𝑢 𝑥 𝜕𝑋 𝑑𝑋 𝜖 𝑥𝑦 = 1 2 𝜕 𝑢 𝑦 𝜕𝑋

31
**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

𝑑𝑥 Constitutive Equations definition of strain Average configuration: But in which direction does the stress act? Should be in the Final Configuration! (considering the high anisotropy) 𝜖 𝑥𝑥 = 𝜕 𝑢 𝑥 𝜕 𝑥 =0 𝑑𝑋 INCONSISTENCY

32
**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

33
**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

Large deformation theory Deformation gradient: 𝑭= 𝑑𝒙 𝑑𝑿 =𝛻𝒙 and also: 𝒂=𝑭∙ 𝒂 0

34
**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

The usual polar decomposition: 𝑭=𝑹∙𝑼=𝑽∙𝑹 (R orthogonal, V & U symmetric) maintains an orthogonal basis which is usually wrong!

35
**Constitutive Equations definition of strain**

Solution: multiplicative split 𝑭=𝑹∙𝑮 (R orthogonal, G non-symmetric), knowing 𝒂=𝑭∙ 𝒂 0 such that 𝒂= 𝑙 𝑙 0 𝑹∙ 𝒂 0 and hence 𝑮∙ 𝒂 0 = 𝑙 𝑙 0 𝒂 0 leading to 𝜖= 1 2 𝑙 𝟐 − 𝑙 0 𝟐 𝑙 0 𝟐 = 1 2 𝑙 0 𝟐 𝒂 0 𝒂 0 : 𝑪−𝟏 as the scalar fibre strain ϵ in direction a with 𝑪= 𝑭 𝑇 ∙𝑭= 𝑮 𝑇 ∙𝑮
