Spring-forward is a distortion of corner sections in continuous fibre reinforced composite products. The linear thermoelastic prediction for the spring-forward of single curved geometries is incorporated in a FE formulation for plate elements in order to simulate the spring-forward of doubly curved products. The proposed methodology is demonstrated with the simulation of the process-induced distortion of a wing leading edge stiffener.
