Numerical Simulation of Thermoplastic Composite Material by ANSYS
This paper proposes a material model of AS4/PEEK, a typical thermoplastic composite material, for the general purpose finite element code—ANSYS, which can be used to predict the mechanical behavior of AS4/PEEK composite structures. The computational result using this model has a good agreement with the test result. This investigation can lay the foundation for the numerical simulation of thermoplastic composite structures.
