Warpage of rubber pressed composites

Abstract

The rubber pressing process is applied for the rapid production of thermoplastic composite products. However, rubber pressed products show geometrical distortions, such as warpage, due to process-induced residual stresses. It is believed that these stresses build up as a result of the large thermal gradients that are present during consolidation. An… (More)
