SUMMARY In order to understand the mechanisms involved in the forming step of LCM processes and provide validation date to numerical models, a specific experimental device has been designed in collaboration between PRISME Institute and EADS. The goal of this paper is to present the potentialities and the first results obtained with this device.
An experimental device of dry preform stamping was designed and carried out for the first stage of the RTM process. This tool was developed to test the feasibility to obtain specific double curved shape constituted with dry fabric reinforcement. Optical strain measurement can quantify defects on the composite piece. It is just enough to change the desired(More)
