Curing simulation by autoclave resin infusion
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-16, 11:36 authored by Blest, DC, McKee, S, Zulkifle, AK, Marshall, P
This paper deals with the modelling and simulation of resin flow, heat transfer and the curing of a multilayer thermoset composite by the resin film infusion process. For approximately isothermal flows, the model is based on Darcy's Law and Stoke's equations where a similarity solution is obtained and subsequently used in a two-dimensional convection-diffusion heat equation coupled with a rate of cure equation. A finite difference scheme is applied to the energy equation on a moving grid and simulations for varying laminate thicknesses and number of plies are performed. Â© 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd.
