Abstract

The aim of this study is the determination of the deforming micromechanisms of needle-punched felts subjected to tensile loads. A large experimental campaign has been carried out at micro and meso-scale levels to analyze the influence of the fiber and the network structure in the mechanical properties. Pull-out tests and felt tensile tests were performed. A constitutive physically-based model was developed within the context of the finite element method, which provided the constitutive response for a mesodomain including micromechanical aspects as fiber sliding and pull-out. The macroscopic response has been validated with the experimental results, showing a very good agreement.
