Abstract

Composite laminates such as carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP), glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) and fibre metal composite laminates (FMLs) are being widely used in aerospace and automotive industry. The demand for these materials is increasing due to their superior properties such as high strength to weight ratio, good corrosion resistance and high stiffness. Drilling is a major process in manufacturing of holes which is required for assembling the components in industry. Drilling of holes in CFRP leads to a drilling induced damage called delamination. The researchers have tried to reduce the drilling induced damage by minimizing the operating variables and tool design. However the research on delamination analysis using finite element method is limited. This research paper includes the designing of drill bit using 3D modeling software CATIA V5.0 and the composite material is modeled using finite element analysis (FEA) software ANSYS V14.5. Analysis is carried out for various spindle speed, point angle and feed rate.
