Modelling of failure of structural textile composites (2000)

Abstract This paper summarizes extensive experimental work regarding the manufacture,mechanical characterization and modelling of textile thermoplastic composites produced bymeans of commingled yarns. These composites are believed to have a high potential forapplications in structural automotive components. However, methods need to be developedfor faster manufacturing and reliable prediction of the component mechanical performanceand failure. A practical approach of finite element modelling of the stiffness and strengthbehaviour of these composites is briefly discussed.
