Abstract

In this paper, a new approach in material modeling related to shear cutting of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) is introduced. The aim is to formulate a phenomenological model accounting for the inner (micromechanical) processes which influence the cutting behavior and the quality of the cutting surface. This is required to make shear cutting of CFRP suitable for mass production like car manufacturing in terms of reduction of processing costs.
