Abstract

This paper is the second in a three part study into the numerical simulation of the Light Resin Transfer Moulding (LRTM) process. It focuses on the development of empirically derived models for the permeability and compaction behaviour of Unifilo during LRTM. A detailed review of relevant literature allowed identification of important material parameters, and appropriate testing procedures were devised accordingly. Previously published approaches were used to construct LRTM specific permeability and compaction models. A material response for each stage of the process has been quantified and can now been incorporated into the LRTM computational simulation being concurrently developed.
