Paper Title:
Modeling and Simulation of Resin Filling and Cure Processes in Molds Partially Filled with Porous Media
  Abstract

The complete and simultaneous simulation of the overall filling and curing processes is presented. Fluid flow in the porous medium is described by the Brinkman-Forchheimer flow model, and fluid flow in the clear fluid domain is described by the Navier-Stokes equations. The flow front is captured using the volume fraction concept and a compressive convective scheme. Energy conservation equation and resin conversion equation give the equations to obtain the temperature and degree of cure, respectively. The physical model is solved using a control volume based finite element method. A limited set of results is presented, showing the usefulness of the information obtained from the complete and simultaneous simulation of the overall real process.
