Friction Behaviour of Carbon Fiber Fabrics with Binder Application during the draping process
The forming of 2-dimensional woven fabrics into a double curved shape is achieved through local shear deformation of the fabric. Besides the shear forces there are furthermore friction forces between the mold and fabric as well as between the fabric layers in contact with each other (inter-ply friction). With this work the characteristic friction behavior of Carbon fiber fabrics with single side applied powder binder against a tool at different process conditions of the preform process have been investigated. The varied process parameters are friction speed, normal force, fiber orientation and temperature.
