Hybrid approach for woven fabric modelling based on discrete hypoelastic behaviour and experimental validation

Abstract : A non-linear discrete hybrid approach based on the association of hypoelastic continuous elements (non-linear shear behaviour) with specific connectors (non-linear tension stiffness) is developed. It allows the simulation of a two-dimensional (2D) woven reinforcement forming via an accurate explicit finite element analysis. This approach allows the simulation of 2D unbalanced fabrics uncoupling tensile and shear behaviour. It only needs a few parameters to be identified, and shows a good agreement with the experiments. The identification of the model parameters is investigated, and their relevance is analysed in reference tests. To determine the continuous element behaviour, a VUMAT hypoelastic model is implemented in Abaqus/Explicit. This model allows the prediction of fibre stresses and the accurate determination of shear angle in large deformations. Identification and validation of the model are performed using standard characterisation fabric tests. The experimental characterisation provided the numerical data to produce a representational prediction of the deformed fabric geometry and shear angle distribution. Further, the behaviour of the carbon woven reinforcement is identified. A bias extension test is used to both calibrate and validate the model. The capability of the model is illustrated to simulate deep drawing, and to compare with the experimental results of hemispherical forming.
