THE POSSIBILITY OF USING WOOD FIBER MATS IN PRODUCTS MANUFACTURING MADE OF POLYMER COMPOSITES BASED ON NUMERICAL SIMULATIONS

Print

ABSTRACT

In this work the calculations for predicting the properties of wood fiber mats – polyester resin composite using numerical homogenization method were performed. For this purpose, the microstructural strength properties were calculated using DIGIMAT FE commercial code. In addition, for comparative purposes a calculation of polyester resin - glass fiber composites was conducted. This allowed to compare the properties of two types of compositions. In addition, the obtained strength properties were used to simulate the work of product made of these composites. This study was performed using the Ansys commercial code. Usability of the polyester resin - wood fiber mat composite and knowledge of its properties will allow to find a correct application of this composite type and can provide an alternative way to other polymeric resin reinforced by mat.
