|Titel:||Material Modelling of Short Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic for the FEA of a Clinching Test|
|Kategorie:||Artikel in Fachzeitschriften|
In modern car body construction, multi-material and hybrid design is used, whereby short fibre reinforced plastics combined with light metals represent an interesting class of work-piece materials. In order to realize modern hybrid construction, suitable joining techniques are therefore required. Clinching represents a cost-effective and easy to implement joining method. In this paper the material modelling of the short fibre reinforced thermoplastic sheets considering the fibre orientation tensor for the FEA of the clinching process is presented.
