ANALYSIS OF WELDED POLYPROPYLENE STRUCTURES: COMBINATION OF EXPERIMENTS AND SIMULATIONS

Theresa Distlbacher, Martin Reiter, Zoltan Major

Abstract


The effect of joining by extrusion welding on the tensional stiffness and strength of a Polypropylene copolymer was analysed. Short-term and creep tests with laboratory specimens were conducted. Welded joint sub-components were simulated with the finite element method and the results were validated by experiments.
