Abstract Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites offer exciting new possibilities for the green automotive industry, owing to their excellent mechanical properties, advantageous weight reduction and economical fuel consumption. In practice, accurately predicting fiber orientation is a critical issue in causing anisotropy in the mechanical properties of the FRP parts. Recently, an objective fiber orientation model, iARD-RPR (Improved Anisotropic Rotary Diffusion model combined with a Retarding… CONTINUE READING
