Prediction of the Mechanical Characteristics of Reinforced Thermoplastic Composite Materials Used in Aviation
Within the framework of the present work, the results of calculation and experimental studies of the mechanical characteristics of textile composites with a thermoplastic matrix are presented. A software module and a numerical model for calculating the effective elastic characteristics of composite materials with a thermoplastic matrix are developed. At the heart of the developed software module implemented in the engineering package ANSYS, the method of averaging by volume, integrated into ANSYS Mechanical, is applied. Based on the results of numerical experiments, effective elastic characteristics for a periodicity cell with an interlacing of 5H Satin and a layered composite material were determined. The verification of the developed numerical models has been carried out.
