The thorough analysis of modeling technical fabrics behavior with the viscoplastic Bodner-Partom constitutive law is presented. The study has been focused on differences between the warp and weft direction of the material. To obtain the model’s parameters only the uniaxial tensile laboratory tests with three different, but constant strain rates are required. The parameters have been found for polyester fibers PVC coated fabrics:...
Influence of service ageing on polyester-reinforced polyvinyl chloride-coated fabrics reported through mathematical material models
In this paper the coupled service (constructional tension) and environmental (sunlight, rainfalls, temperature variations) ageing influence on the polyester-reinforced polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-coated fabric VALMEX is studied. Two cases of the same fabric have been analyzed: one USED for 20 years on the real construction of the Forest Opera in Sopot (Poland), and one kept as a spare material (NOT USED). The following tests have...
The analysis of the Burgers model used for the constitutive description of the technical fabric VALMEX vis-coelastic behavior is presented. It has revealed that the correctness of the identification depends strongly on the level of the immediate strain taken for calculations. Moreover, it has been proven that the Burgers model can be used for modelling of the viscoelastic properties of the polyester reinforced PVC coated VALMEX...
