A Finite Element Model to Simulate the Cutting of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials
In the present study, the finite element model of machining carbon fiber reinforced aluminum matrix composites with representative fiber orientation of 90 degree is established with the following developments: (i) a Johnson-Cook constitutive model of each component in the multi-phase composite materials; (ii) a failure model of the composite material based on physical separation criterion; (iii) the interface between fiber and matrix defined by a interaction. This simulating method can be developed to each kind of fiber reinforced composite materials.
