Relaxation properties of polyoxymethylene and ethylene–octene copolymer blend in solid and melt states
Rheological properties of polyoxymethylene (POM) and ethylene–octene copolymer (EOC) in solid and melt states were investigated. Blends were prepared with a twin screw extruder at broad component wt-to-wt ratios (10, 30, 50, 70, 90 wt% of EOC). The morphology as well as calorimetric, rheological, and elastic properties of the blends were studied. The investigation showed that POM/EOC blends were heterogeneous in nature and had a broad phase transition region between 30 and 70 wt% of POM. Because during processing ...
Parameter identification for constitutive models of innovative textile composite materials using digital image correlation
This contribution focuses on an innovative composite material consisting of textile layers made from continuous wooden fibers embedded in a thermoplastic matrix. A finite element simulation of potential use‐cases is planned to support the development process and to study the suitability of the material in an architectural context. The simulation is based on a constitutive model assuming homogenous orthotropic elastic behavior and will be expanded to include multiscale modeling in future research. The material parameters ...
Influence Of The Fiber-Matrix-Interaction On The Fracture Behavior Of Regenerated Cellulose Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene
(Society of Plastics Engineers, 2017)
This investigation focuses on the fiber-matrix-interaction of man-made cellulose fibers (RCF) in a PP matrix with an additional MAPP content using an energetic evaluation of the single fiber pull-out test (SFPT). Furthermore glass fibers were characterized for reference purposes. With the SFPT the interfacial shear strength (IFFS) and the critical fiber length (lc) as well as the consumed energy of a fiber pull-out and a fiber rupture were determined. In a following step the resulting values of lc were related to the ...
Joining Investigations of Polymer-Metal-Hybrids for Permanantly Non-Leaking Applications
(Society of Plastics Engineers, 2016)
The demand for light-weight construction and economic efficiency has led to the development of light-weight construction strategies, i.e., multi-material design, in many areas of industry. Here, the property profiles of the composite partners are utilized synergetically. Plastic-metal hybrid composites possess a large amount of potential in this regard owing to the weight reduction that can be achieved in the composite and the simultaneous enhancement of the mechanical properties. Hybrid components have already ...
