The anisotropic nature of laminated composites creates a unique opportunity and also a great challenge for tailoring their behavior during the forming processes according to the design requirements. In this work, design and simulation of a deep drawing process for fiber-reinforced laminated composites were conducted by using finite element analysis. The effects of the fiber orientation and stacking order on the deep drawing process were investigated based on the basic understanding of forming process of the isotropic aluminum alloy (Al-1100) and laminated composite material (Grilon RVZ-15H nylon/glass). A three dimensional finite element model incorporating layered structural laminates with various fiber orientations was developed. The load-stroke relationship, changes in thickness, and stress-strain distribution were investigated and compared for both aluminum alloy and laminated composites of [0]12 , [0/90]6 and [0/90/45/135]3 , which can be employed for detailed design and process optimization.
