How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The objective of this paper is to understand and study the effect of morphological parameters on the shear stiffness of an entangled cross-linked fibrous material made with carbon fibres where some of the contacts are bonded by the epoxy resin. This current work presents a 3D finite element model using ABAQUS/Standard in order to characterize the m...
The analysis of an entangled cross-linked fibrous material at low deformation is explored as way of predicting the shear behaviour, especially the shear hysteresis. This paper presents a 3D finite element model to characterize the carbon fibre network rigidified by epoxy cross-links. The morphology of the representative volume element (RVE) is stud...
A new entangled cross-linked material was recently developed in order to present a new core material that can resolve the drawbacks of the honeycomb. The optimization of entangled carbon fibres requires a deep understanding of the influence of the parameters of a fibre network on its macroscopic behaviour. This paper presents a 3D finite element mo...
