Abstract:Friction plays an important role in the production of fibre reinforced
composite products. The fibrous tows deform during the forming phase. Friction is
regarded as a dominant phenomenon in tow deformation mechanisms. The coefficient
of friction is a material-interface characteristic which gives a relation between applied
deformation loads and frictional forces. A capstan experiment has been performed with
carbon fibre tows on a steel cylinder. This work aims to clarify friction related mechanisms
and identify dominant parameters. The applicability of the capstan experiment is
investigated with respect to the frictional behaviour of fibrous tows.
