Data set determination for lifetime assessment of short fibre reinforced polymers
In the present paper, a methodical approach to data set determination for the lifetime assessment of short fibre reinforced (sfr) polymers is presented. In particular, the issue of proper material characterisation, focusing on the required material models (for fibre orientation, temperature, notch effect, mean stress) and specimen testing, is discussed. A data set generation procedure for lifetime assessment is illustrated using the example of a short glass fibre reinforced polyphthalamide. The key points relating to data set generation are discussed and the approach presented provides a method of standardised data set generation for the lifetime assessment of components made of short fibre reinforced plastics.
