Simulation of Discontinuous Fiber Reinforced Composites along the CAE-Chain

Wittemann, Florian ORCID iD icon; Hohberg, Martin; Kärger, Luise; Henning, Frank


The manufacturing process of fiber reinforced composites with polymer matrix significantly influences the mechanical properties of the final composite structure. Therefore, reliable process simulation is crucial to predict the process behavior and relevant process effects. Virtual simulation of the complete CAE-Chain, including process and structural simulation, is thus highly important for the composite manufacturing industry for creating high quality and design optimized parts. In this presentation the development of a discontinuous fiber reinforced lightweight composite part along the CAE-Chain is demonstrated. The geometry is customized, with results of process and structural simulations under consideration of process conditions and mechanical load. The development is based on the MMP approach (combined consideration of methods, materials and processes) in order to ensure holistic product development for lightweight and high-performance fiber composite components.
