Unidirectional continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic crush tubes - Part A: Specimen production based on a novel rapid tape-placement process
This paper presents the tape-laying production process of continuous-fiber-reinforced tube specimens designed for investigating the relation between fiber angle relative to the impact direction and absorbed crash energy. This article introduces the high-speed automated preforming of tube precursor laminates from unidirectional E-glass/PA6 and E-Glass/PET-PU prepreg tape and the crush specimen production.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
