Fiber orientation assessment in complex shaped parts reinforced with carbon fiber using infrared thermography

Authors: Fernandes, HenriqueMaldague, X.
Abstract: The use of composite materials is growing more and more every day in several applications. The arrangement or orientation of the fibers relative to one another have a significant influence on the strength and other properties of fiber reinforced composites. Thus, evaluation techniques are needed for measuring material fiber orientation. In this work infrared thermography is employed to assess the material’s fiber orientation. More specifically a pulsed infrared diode laser heating spot technique combined with a 3D model of the part is used in order to assess fiber orientation on the surface of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer complex shaped parts made of carbon/PEEK (Polyether ether ketone) randomly-oriented strands.
