Influencing the induction heating of textile-reinforced CFRP by laminate parameters
In order to determine the influence of laminate parameters on the inductive heating behavior of ther-moplastic carbon fiber-reinforced laminates, specific specimens were produced and examined in static heating tests. The specimens differed in the fiber volume content, the laminate thickness, the linear density, the thread-count, and the polymer of the matrix. To analyze the influence of the different pa-rameters, the respective heating rates of the two laminate surfaces of a specimen were determined. A reduction of the thread-county, the linear density or the laminate thickness results in an increase in the heating rate. However, a reduction in the fiber volume content results in a reduction of the heating rate. Different contact characteristics between the carbon fiber rovings were identified as the cause.
