Two Hybrid Approaches to Fatigue Modeling of Advanced-Sheet Molding Compounds (A-SMC) Composite
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
To reinforce the environmental standards, we need to strengthen the lightening of vehicles and to generalize new composite materials in order to reduce weight. To use these innovative composite materials in the mass production of automotive parts, it is essential to propose a predictive approach of the S-N curves, which must be established for each new composite formulation and for several types of microstructure within real components. Although these preliminary characterizations consume time and money, this paper proposes two hybrid methodologies to predict the fatigue life during the fatigue test. Both methodologies are based on micromechanical modeling which is developed under monotonous loading with fatigue effects under different amplitudes. The suggested methodology is based on an experimental analysis of monotonic behavior under fatigue loading and on multi-scale modeling of damage. In the results, the proposed model and the used approaches are in good agreement with the experimental results.
