FiberScan

Introduction

 

Fiber orientation, caused by processing, has a serious influence on the final mechanical properties of reinforced components.

 

For this reason the prediction of fiber orientation using flow simulation software is an important tool for the designer.

 

Unfortunately it is not easy to visualize the orientation by simple methods, which makes comparison between simulation and reality very complex.

 

Applications of FiberScan:

  • Evaluation of orientation in semi-finished and final products,
  • Quality control of semi-finished and final products,
  • Simulation control,
  • Calculation of anisotropic material properties.

FiberScan is an efficient tool for the determination of fiber orientation in any component, based on... more
