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 …

Multi-scale material modeling for additive manufacturing

While additive manufacturing of reinforced polymers is appealing and increasingly considered for production of actual parts, major obstacles must be overcome by engineers. Dimensional accuracy of the part must obey to strict tolerances that may not be met due to thermally induced part distortion or poor surface roughness. On the material side, an anisotropic material behavior is brought in by the specific 3D printed layered architecture and oriented reinforcements. This process-induced material behavior make the part mechanical response challenging to predict.

Therefore, Digimat, the material modeling platform, can offer you a solution to overcome your challenges.
