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 …

3D Woven Analysis Using Digimat

Proportions of composite materials for aeronautic applications have dramatically increased over the last decades because of their inherent properties combining high mechanical properties with low mass. However, the major concern of the traditional 2D composites is the reduction of properties due to delamination between plies because of weak through-the-thickness properties. Three dimensional woven give the …
