Temperature Variation History Prediction of Fully-Closed Adhesive Joint in Curing Process
To describe the heat transfer of fully-closed adhesive joint in curing process, adhesive joint, enclosure for closing joints and its inner air are simplified as a multi-lumped-heat-capacity system neglecting the heat from adhesive chemical reaction. Based on heat transfer theory, a temperature prediction model of fully-closed joint was proposed. Combining experimental temperature history of the joint with finite difference method, the combined heat transfer coefficients of adhesive under different curing temperatures were obtained according to Newton's heat transfer formula. And the model was validated by the experiments. The results revealed that the model can be used to predict the temperature of fully-closed adhesive joint in curing process.
