Experimental Study on Planar Unidirectional Permeability of Glass Fiber Preforms at Constant Flow Rate
During the resin flow of Resin Transfer Molding, the permeability of fiber performs is an important parameter, which reflects the interaction between the resin and fiber. In this paper the Darcy’s law was used as the fundamentals to determine the permeability of fiber performs, an experiment installation was designed, and do some experimental study on the one-dimensional permeability of resin in the multilayer fibrous plaids at a constant flow rate. The installation was designed base on condition of different flow rates and different fiber volumes (or porosity), and compared the results of the permeability of different flow rates. Then analyzed the results, and some content conclusions were obtained.
