Exploration of the design freedom of 3D printed continuous fibre-reinforced polymers in open-hole tensile strength tests Vrije Universiteit Brussel
In the current work, the design freedom of 3D printed composite parts reinforced with continuous fibres is explored. The placement of continuous fibres to reduce stress concentrations around the hole is exploited in open-hole tests. Distinct counterintuitive performance in tensile strength is observed. The expected gain in ultimate tensile strength by adding contour reinforcement around the hole could only be observed for a rectangular ...

Study on Effects of Process Parameters on Mechanical Behaviors of Injection Molded Glass Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene Matrix Composite KU Leuven
Currently, there is an expanding demand of composite materials for various engineering applications. Glass fiber reinforced polymer composites, prepared by injection molding, is among these composites. Injection molding method has basic process parameters which determine the mechanical behaviors of polymer matrix composites (PMCs). However, only few studies have been reported on the effects of injection molding process parameters for a typical ...
