Analyze on the Mechanical Properties of Stitched Composites


Article Preview

As the most potential member in the textile composite material, stitched textile composites have already been paid a lot attention. By the simply technology form and relatively low cost, stitched composites had attracted many domestic and foreign researchers, and were gradually used in various engineering practice. This paper using 3D micro-finite element method researches the mechanical behavior and performance of stitched composites, establishing a 3D micro-finite element model for the stitched composites under the improved locking suture way. Through analysis, it shows that each material’s stress distribution characteristics under external loading and finds that the results of this paper’s finite element data results matching well with previous studies’ results, proving the feasibility of this study, so it can be used for forecasting the mechanical properties of a variety of practical stitched composites.
