A method for incorporating and comparing stochastic scatter of macroscopic parameters in crash simulations is developed in
the present work and applied on a 30 wt.% short glass fiber reinforced polypropylene. Therefore, a statistical testing plan
on the basis of three point bending tests with 30 samples for each configuration is carried out. The tests are conducted at
0 Degrees, 30 Degrees, 45 Degrees and 90 Degrees orientation angles and at strain rates of 0.021/s and 85/s. The obtained
results are evaluated statistically by means of probability distribution functions. An orthotropic elastic plastic material
model is utilized for the numerical investigations. Monte Carlo Simulations with variations in macroscopic parameters are
run to emulate the stochastic rupture behavior of the experiments.
