Fiber orientation analysis of a 50% glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) based on a combination of semi-crystalline polyamide with partially aromatic copolyamide
Many industries face the challenge of designing lightweight materials. Sandwich-structured composites are a special class of composite materials with the typical features of low weight, high stiffness, and high strength. The fibers of such material enhance
properties of the final part (strength and stiffness) while minimizing weight. Their distribution and direction are crucial factors for the mechanical properties of the final part.
Avizo Software enables analysis of the internal fiber structure to improve these properties and the product development process. Fiber length distribution, diameter distribution, and through thickness orientation variation can be computed.
