Abstract:Thermoplastic composite materials can be processed by Rubber Press Forming at elevated temperatures. Process specific boundary conditions are difficult to incorporate in the classical geometric drape simulation methods. Therefore, a fabric reinforced fluid model was implemented in the Finite Element package DIEKA, which is capable of modelling the boundary conditions as well. The model predictions of both types of simulations are compared for a double dome geometry, having separated contact areas, leading to different results.
