Effect of Defects on Part Made with AFP Using Digimat

Automatic Fiber Placement (AFP) is a fast and efficient deposition process of carbon prepreg for large component application. To accommodate the composite strips onto a double curved surface, the tows can be cut then restarted and slightly misoriented, yielding to the apparition of gaps between the tows. These two defects, i.e. the gaps and misalignment …
