Nanocomposites allow for a significant enhancement of functional properties, in particular electrical conduction. In order to optimize materials and parts, predictive models are required to evaluate particle distribution and orientation. Both are key parameters in order to evaluate percolation and the resulting electrical networks. Many forming processes involve flowing suspensions for which the final particle orientation could be controlled by means of the flow and the electric field. In view of the multiscale character of the problem, detailed descriptions are defined at the microscopic scale and then coarsened to be applied efficiently in process simulation at the macroscopic scale. The first part of this work revisits the different modeling approaches throughout the different description scales. Then, modeling of particle contacts is addressed as they determine the final functional properties, in particular electrical conduction. Different descriptors of rod contacts are proposed and analyzed. Numerical results are discussed, in particular to evaluate the impact of closure approximations needed to derive a macroscopic description.

Most suspension descriptions nowadays employed are based on Jeffery model and some of its phenomenological adaptations that do not take into account the possible existence of a relative velocity between the fibres and the suspending fluid when the fibre interactions increase. It is expected that at very low density of contacts, as predicted by standard suspension models, fibres move with the suspending fluid velocity. When the density of fibre interactions becomes extremely high and a percolated network of fibre contacts is established within the suspension, fibres cannot move anymore and then the fluid flows throughout the rigid or moderately deformable entangled fibre skeleton, like a fluid flowing through a porous medium. In between these two limit cases, one could expect that fibres move but with a velocity lower than the one of the suspending fluid. Thus, two contributions are expected, one coming from standard suspension theory in which fibres and fluid move with the same velocity, and the other resulting in a Darcy contribution consisting of the relative fibre/fluid velocity. In this paper, we elaborate a general model able to adapt continuously to all these flow regimes.

When addressing the flow of concentrated suspensions composed of rods, dense clusters are observed. Thus, the adequate modelling and simulation of such a flow requires addressing the kinematics of these dense clusters and their impact on the flow in which they are immersed. In a former work, we addressed a first modelling framework of these clusters, assumed so dense that they were considered rigid and their kinematics (flow-induced rotation) were totally defined by a symmetric tensor c with unit trace representing the cluster conformation. Then, the rigid nature of the clusters was relaxed, assuming them deformable, and a model giving the evolution of both the cluster shape and its microstructural orientation descriptor (the so-called shape and orientation tensors) was proposed. This paper compares the predictions coming from those models with finer-scale discrete simulations inspired from molecular dynamics modelling.

Multi-scale modeling and simulation of thermoplastic automated tape placement: Effects of metallic particles reinforcement on part consolidation

This paper concerns engineered composites integrating metallic particles to enhance thermal and electrical properties. However, these properties are strongly dependent on the forming process itself that determines the particle distribution and orientation. At the same time, the resulting enhanced thermal properties affect the reinforced resin viscosity whose flow is involved in the intimate contact evolution. Thus, a subtle and intricate coupling appears, and the process cannot be defined by ignoring it. In this paper, we analyze the effects of particle concentration and orientation on the process and processability. For this purpose, three main models are combined: (i) a multi-scale surface representation and its evolution, by using an appropriate numerical model; (ii) flow-induced orientation, and (iii) the impact of the orientation state on the homogenized thermal conductivity.

Sensitivity thermal analysis in the laser-assisted tape placement process
PEREZ, Marta; BARASINSKI, Anaïs; COURTEMANCHE, Benoît; GHNATIOS, Chady; CHINESTA, Francisco
Nowadays, the production of large pieces made of thermoplastic composites is an industrial challenging issue as there are yet several difficulties associated to their processing. The laserassisted tape placement (LATP) process is an automated manufacturing technique to produce long-fiber reinforced thermoplastic matrix composites. In this process, a tape is placed and progressively welded on the substrate. The main aim of the present work is to solve an almost state of the art thermal model by using an efficient numerical technique, the so-called Proper Generalized Decomposition (PGD) that considers parameters (geometrical and material) as model extra-coordinates. Within the PGD rationale the parametric temperature field is expressed in a separated form, as a finite sum of functional products, where each term depends on a single coordinate (space, time or each one of the parameters considered as extra-coordinates). Such a separated representation allows the explicit expression of the sensitivity fields, from the temperature derivative with respect to each parameter. These sensitivity fields represent a very valuable methodology to analyze and establish the influence of the critical input parameters on the thermal response, and therefore, for performing process optimization and control, as well as for evaluating the effect of parameters variability on the thermal response.

Advanced modeling and simulation of sheet moulding compound (SMC) processes

In SMC processes, a charge of a composite material, which typically consists of a matrix composed of an unsaturated polyester or vinylester, reinforced with chopped glass fibres or carbon fi bre bundles and fillers, is placed on the bottom half of the preheated mould. The charge usually covers 30 to 90% of the total area. The upper half of the mould is closed rapidly at a speed of about 40 mm/s. This rapid movement causes the charge to flow inside the cavity. The reinforcing fibres are carried by the resin and experience a change of confi guration during the flow. This strongly influences the mechanical properties of the final part. Several issues compromises its efficient numerical simulation, among them: (i) the modeling of flow kinematics able to induce eventual fibres/resin segregation, (ii) the con ned fibres orientation evolution and its accurate prediction, (iii) local dilution effects, (iv) flow bifurcation at junctions and its impact on the fibres orientation state, (v) charge / mould contact and (vi) parametric solutions involving non-interpolative fields. The present paper reports advanced modeling and simulation techniques for circumventing, or at least alleviating, the just referred difficulties.
