A3: Temperature-dependent Failure Analysis of Fibre-reinforced Thermoplastics for Automotive Applications

Tuesday 30 October 2018, 11:35 – 12:00
Hanse Saal

Session Chairs: M. Würtele / F. Henning


Within the Federal Cluster of Excellence MERGE at the Technische Universität Chemnitz, fibre-reinforced thermoplastics have been investigated under thermomechanical loading conditions to analyse the temperature-dependent degradation of the mechanical properties. As a result, these properties are analytically described as a function of temperature to extend the physically-based fracture criterion of Cuntze and to design a roof bow of a car body structure supported by numerical simulation.
