Abstract

The interest in the use of renewable resources (RRs) increases, especially
in the automotive industry. Due to the high density-related strength of natural
fibres (NF), lightweight constructions can be realized by RRs. In the car development process it is essential that all components are compatible with CAE
methods. For glass fibre-reinforced polymers models have been well investigated. However, data for the simulation of NF-reinforced composites are essentially non-existent. Therefore different natural fibres were characterized
according to their mechanical and morphological properties and the orientation was determined in injection moulded samples. The experimentally determined properties were used as input for the simulation. The simulative
results could be confirmed by the experiments.

Keywords: natural fibres, lightweight construction, injection moulding, simulation

DFX 2017 28th SYMPOSIUM DESIGN FOR X, Bamberg, GER, 04-05 OCTOBER, 2017The “Symposium Design for X” will be held at the Welcome Kongresshotel, Bamberg, Germany on 4 – 5 October 2017. The annual event provides a platform to young postgraduates to present and discuss their new approaches in the field of product development. Industry professionals and professors will enrich these discussions with their manifold experience. This year's symposium will be hosted by Prof. Sandro Wartzack, head of the chair of engineering design (KTmfk) at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg....
